National Poly Hive Ashforth Feeder
If there are any issues with availability we will contact you when we process your order.
This National mould is as durable as our deep roofed poly hive and is a single moulded high density polystyrene hive (160g/litre). It provides enhanced insulation properties and strength and comes ready painted and ready to use straight from the box. As with our original poly hive, they are also embossed on the top and bottom of both the brood boxes and supers with rigid plastic. Feeder is not included.
Sometimes there is water ingress in the runners of the boxes, because the two plastic surfaces are not watertight and plastic cannot absorb water like wood. This is normal and if found a problem can easily be rectified by smearing a good amount of Vaseline on the top of the plastic runners to create a watertight seal between boxes.
Frames/foundation, if included, comprise:
Frames DN4 x 11 + foundation (flat pack)
Frames SN4 x 22 + foundation (flat pack)
