Next Generation Bee Hive
High Productivity & Long Economic Life
Apimaye hives are user and bee friendly. It is easy to clean the bottom board by removing the bottom tray. Bees spend less time to remove the debris. They consume less food, spend less time and energy to maintain the brood temperature. The bees consume less food in the winter and develop faster in the spring.
Apimaye Thermo Hives do not rot, warp, or absorb moisture, therefore their lifespan is longer and require much less maintenance. All Thermo Hives come fully assembled and ready to use. They do not need to be painted, nailed, or repaired. They can be washed with a pressure washer.
Apimaye bee hives are more resistant to normal wear and tear. Their average economic life is longer than other types of hives. Apimaye Thermo Hives prevent thousands of trees in our forests from being cut down for the purpose of making bee hives every year, and helps conserving the nature.
Bee Friendly Plastic
Apimaye Thermo Hives are manufactured from certified plastic (HDPE) in accordance with the Food Codex, directly colored without employing external paint, using plastic blow molding and injection molding technologies. The hives are manufactured with anti-static additives against dust formation. UV additives protect the hives against harmful sun rays, and prolong their service life.
Easy to Transport & Easy to Clean
The brood box, supers and hive covers are latched together for easy transport. Handles on the brood box and deep supers provide easy lifting and transportation. The entrance reducer can be safely closed and locked, preventing the bees from entering or exiting the hive during transportation. The entrance can be reduced to prevent robbing. The screen bottom board, ventilation holes on the hive bodies and hive lids provide adequate ventilation during transportation, eliminating losses and colony collapses.
You can disinfect Apimaye Bee Hives by using common disinfectants such as bleach, sodium hypo-chloride or soapy water if there is any contamination such as American foul brood (AFB) or European foul brood (EFB) diseases. After using disinfectants the hives need to be rinsed with water by using a pressure washer or just garden hose. Letting them dry under the sun will also kill the harmful bacteria.
