Frame Wire Rolls :

The Frame Wire ensures that support is provided to the honeycomb on the frame. Usually a Langstroth hive has 2 frame wire supports running across a super frame and 4 running across a brood frame.

These frame wires do require maintenance over time and so keeping a roll of frame wire handy is an excellent idea. We provide frame wire rolls in 1KG format which is the black one indicated to the left.

We are happy to post a frame wire roll to any location in South Africa on arrangement.

Bee hives have been around for centuries in different shapes, designs and sizes. It wasn't until the Langstroth design that the bee hive actually became standardised. There are still many different types of bee hive in use across the world.

The mainstream beehive designs used in South Africa are the Langstroth beehive & Jackson Beehive. The Langstroth Bee hive hasn't been changed much since its first inception in the 1800s. Small changes have been made do incorporate aluminium covers, the type of weather protection used on the wood and the use of a queen excluder to prevent egg laying in the super chamber.

The bee hive made beekeeping manageable as before the advent of the bee hive, bee colonies would be raided for their golden liquid and usually the colony would be destroyed in the process. This created the need for a manageable method to keep bees, transport them and harvest honey from them without causing damage or destruction to the bee colony.
