Poly hives offer a light weight solution to keeping bees with better thermal insultation than traditional cedar hives. Many who keep colonies on poly hives report hight honey yeilds over their cedar hives. This is backed up by research which shows that poly hives are thermally closer to the characteristics of a hollow tree. Swarms and weak colonies do well in poly nucs which are so versitile
We are proud to stock Paynes poly nucs which are the best and the most flexible we have found, the same is true of their poly hives.
