3x Longhive

Here are some photos of my latest Long hive. Also called a Long Lang or Horizontal Hive.

The length is the equivalent of 3x 10 frame Langstroth bee hives beside each other.

This hive has two queens, which is why it has so many supers on it.

You will notice that there is access to the broodnest on the sides without the need to take the hive apart.

I made the lids half width to allow for supers to be placed on top with multiple configurations. But because of this it requires a cove to be placed on top. I am currently testing a clear sheet of PVC carpet protector as it has many bumps on one side which allows air to get underneath the plastic.
