Welcome to Modern Beekeeping


Modern Beekeeping are specialist suppliers of high quality beekeeping equipment, including Langstroth, British National and Nucleus hives, which are made from high density polystyrene and offer outstanding performance at a great price. Our hives are made from a material which now dominates the market in much of Northern Europe. For price and performance they are unbeatable, keeping the bees warm and dry in winter and cool in the summer. The hives we offer have been proven in Finland on a bee farming operation with 3,000 colonies where temperatures range from below -35oC in winter to +35oC in summer. These hives have a life span of over 30 years and can be easily cleaned and sterilised to ensure healthy bees. High density polystyrene is a proven, durable, recyclable and eminently suitable material for bee hives. 
We also supply a full range of suits, jackets and gloves from a Danish company called Swienty, which represent outstanding value for money without compromising on quality.  
We hope you find our site both easy to use and informative, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do everything we can to help.
