Tell me about Paradise Hives
The BeeBox beehive system is the result of 40 years of beekeeping and development experience on the biggest beekeeping operation in Scandinavia. They have been tested as well in harsh environments facing ± 50°C in Northern Europe, arctic Russia, Australia, New Zealand etc.
The beehives are made of food grade, extra hardened, expanded polystyrene (EPS) with a density of over 100 kg/m³. In proper use, the hives will easily last several decades. In order to save space during transport, the boxes are supplied unassembled.
The special frame lists increase the strength of the box and protect it from damage caused by the hive tools, minimizing the problems with the boxes during the tens of years in use.
All the BeeBox models are fitted with ergonomically designed handles located at all four sides of the boxes. They enable beekeepers to lift the boxes in a balanced way when placing them on a hive or removing them. BeeBox beehives are available for many different frame sizes, such as European, American, Russian Langstroth and Dadant, British Standard, DNM, Låg Normal, Australian, Spanish, British, Portuguese frames etc. All BeeBox hives are manufactured in Finland, with ISO 9001 quality certified process and materials.
