Our new feeder design also features a removable plug, which can provide access to fondant placed inside the feeder.

The cladding on this shed is Dip Treated 16mm (planed to 12mm finish) specially designed rebated shiplap. IMHO 14 x 12's are not a well thought out system when it comes to the practicality and management of bees. The brood area is about half as much again as the standard National hive and is therefore adequate for a prolific colony. All the miscellaneous kit that I own is mostly from ABELO too, and I’ve never had an issue with anything. I found (and more importantly so did one of my colonies) the space on a single standard not enough for both the early year population explosion and storing food for over wintering.We are a team of passionate beekeepers supplying beginner beekeepers and fellow bee farmers across the nation. Please do not expect 100% blemish free from a product of this nature, whilst we strive to give you the highest quality product available to achieve 100% perfect product in EPS would mean high wastage.

Put the 14x12 box with frames and foundation on top of the national brood (they have the same 46cm square foot print) and then wait for them to move up into the 14x*12. You can use those parts on the poly hive, whether that's a wooden brood box, wooden super, or any other wooden item.There are other reasons which I'm not experienced enough to comment on but make sense to me such as helping expansion and lower likelyhood to swarm. Due to the soft properties of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) and the steam moulding method used to create these products we must inform you that every box will have some sign of manufacturing marks, whether this be from ejecting from the tool onto the heavily padded conveyor belt or light marks from the core steam vents. It might take a few days for the bees to get the message that we want the queen to lay in the 14 x 12's but after a week or so there should be eggs and small larvae in the 14 x 12 frames. ensure you have enough space for the footprint of the building, as well as room for any overhangs, and space to carry out maintenance work, and for air flow round the sides. Please do not attempt to contact the carrier as we are able to deal with this more quickly and efficiently.

The pent roof makes the unit blend into the garden while giving you full headroom throughout the complete shed. Like many other newbeeks who started out on standard nationals (and WBC in my case) this year, I'm definitely moving to 14x12 next. All in all I am happy with my decision and will continue down the 14 x 12 route I am even using them on some converted Smiths hives and find the shorter lugs no problem at all. The shed floor comes as standard with 18mm oriented strand board on 38 x 50 runners keeping the floor 2" off the ground. This means we can anchor the wood closer to help stop twisting with the shrinking and expanding of the timber cladding.

I wouldn't put the national brood over the 14x12 and QE though as there is a good chance they will then use it as a super and start filling it with nectar, which is ok if you want to use it as a super. Sometimes a product they’ve made will be functionally perfect but have a small cosmetic fault and they have been putting these to one side. This inspired us to develop a new higher density polystyrene nuc box that has more than 1 basic purpose. I’ve had a few courier issues with damaged items - yet Abelo have always sorted them promptly and to my satisfaction every time. Some of our sheds may require guttering due to the large amount of water falling to the rear panel that may cause water to soak into the unit.
