Hive Configuration with UD Starter Kit

Starter Kit

This kit includes sufficient pieces to build what we describe as the 'traditional' configuration. 

This is 3 intrances in the bottom brood box and an extra intrance to be placed above, in the second box (brood box or super).

Add-on Kit

The extra intrances provide a mechanism to enhance hive dynamics, allowing for a more natural nest structure, easier access to supers and decreased swarming impulses due to decreased congestion of the brood area.

Further Arrangements

Hives can be adapted in many ways with the benefit that each intrance is easy to guard.

There is no need to use a shim for an extra entrance and intrances can be opened and closed as required making splits or divisions easier to manipulate.

The use of a floor is simplified with no need to modify, replace or adapt entrance cleats.
