Medium supers are great either for additional room for your colony to store honey, or as a home base for the queen and her brood. Our medium (Illinois) supers, made from high quality eastern white pine, provide beautiful, dependable homes for colonies.
Our process:All of our woodenware is made with high quality materials in order to serve you and your bees for many years to come. We use eastern white pine lumber from the forests of the northeastern U.S. to build the many different pieces needed to make our hives.
First, each piece of pine is cut to the proper length and height. Then our equipment precision mills the interlocking finger joints, trims the boards to the exact length, and carves out the rabbet joints and easy-grip handholds. Finally, we pre-drill holes in the corner of each hive to increase the hive's strength when you assemble it. This crafting process happens entirely in our Kentucky facility.
