Stewart Spinks from Norfolk Honey Company has made great assembly instructions for our hives. View it on Youtube! The assembly starts at 3:01.
Wondering the hive painting? We do recommend it! Painting protects the hive from the water and UV radiation thus it improves the durability. And, of course, painted hives look nice and they are easier to clean. We don’t recommend painting the inside surfaces. Stewart has made also a complete painting guide, view it on YouTube.
In order to save space during the transfer, the hives are delivered disassembled into four parts.
