Boomtreebees makes handmade log hives and our main aim is to help
with the conservation and rewilding of the native honeybee, providing
hives that mimic natural habitats of honeybees. We want to help teach
more about the importance of the honeybee in our environment whilst
also actively participating in the collection of data to better understand
free living colonies.
This log hive most closely mimics a natural nesting site as it can be placed 4 to 6 meters up in a tree. The conservation log hive has a cavity with a diameter of 8″ – 10″ wide and a volume of 35 to 40 liters. It comes with heavy duty adjustable straps for securing it to the tree.
ELEVATED CONSERVATION LOGHIVE
The elevated conservation log hive is designed for areas where there are no suitable trees to place a log hive in. This conservation log beehive comes with a reed thatch hackle. It is elevated 2 meters above the ground by three legs.
The standing log hive is designed for people that would like to harvest honey but still want a more natural living environment for the honeybees. On average the logs are 1.5 meter long. The volume of the chamber is around 60 liters. This log hive comes with a hazel and reed hackle which is secured to the log.
