Modified Dadant Hive

Modified Dadant Hive

Modified Dadant Hive

This hive is the largest hive you can get and is designed similarly to the Langstroth. The frames are deeper and wider than other hives and that's the reason it is a favourite for commercial keepers.

The disadvantage is that it is heavy to move or manipulate, even just the supers. It has a brood area of almost 4,000 square inches.

The complete hive comprises: a wood floor, a brood body, a wire queen excluder, a crown/clearing board, a 4" roof and two supers each with eleven self spacing frames and foundation. A 6" roof and sloping hive stands are also available by emailing us at before placing your order.

All these hives are made from FSC sustainable Cedar, if you wish to use preservatives use an insecticide free wood preserver, you can also use Linseed Oil.

FSC Cedar, does not require treatment, you can leave it as it is although it will grey if you do not use a preservative. Cedar is ideal for the British climate as it is light, tough, aromatic and aesthetic.
