This is the perfect all-in-one gift to yourself or the hobbyist in your life!

Hoover Hives are well-known and loved by beekeepers all across the world for their durable dovetail jointed beehives and 100% natural beeswax coating.

Hoover Hives has developed this Starter Kit to include everything you need but the bees! The brood box included holds 10 frames, but is sold with 5 frames because most local beekeepers sell bees in a '5 Frame Nuc'. Your new nuc will fit right in with these 5 frames to fill the hive.

The kit contains an extra protective jacket with a cinched bottom end to keep it tight around your body. A veil that has been reinforced to stand up right; keeping it from resting on your head and protecting you at all times. A pair of thick elbow length leather gloves. The Original Smoker that plumes with a direct angle to reach even the most difficult areas of the hive. A multipurpose hive tool to help scrape unwanted comb and pry your boxes open on one end and a curl to help pick up frames on the other.

Hoover Hives wax coated hive bodies have been designed to stay true for years to come. They've been dipped in 100% natural beeswax helping them weather the elements without the hassle of painting your hives. Every joint on a Hoover Hive utilizes the dovetailing technique that leaves no room for error and is the defining factor that keeps Hoover Hives perfectly square.

Why Choose Hoover Hives?

Hoover Hives are known for their beautiful and skillfully crafted wax coated beehives.

Every exterior hive part that may encounter rain or snow has been built with Fir wood and has been coated in 100% natural beeswax to help weather the elements.

They’ve thoughtfully chosen to use Fir wood over the traditional Pine because Fir has a tighter knit grain-flow within the wood than Pine does. This makes their exterior parts far more durable and less likely to shrink, expand, warp, or twist from the rain.

Once they’ve cut the wood, they dip each part into a pool of natural beeswax. They allow the beeswax to be soaked into the hive parts. This not only protects the wood, but is also what gives their hives their natural golden honey lustrous allure.

Hoover Hives 10 frame hive parts use dimensions that are consistent with the industry standard and are interchangeable with all other Langstroth 10 frame beehives.

Shipping & Delivery

Our beehives leave the warehouse in mint condition. In transit wooden beehives can become damaged.

We ship out your beehives out during business hours -- we typically ship within 24 hours of when the order was placed. In some cases we do ship your product out on the same day you order it, but if not, you can expect it to be shipped on the following day.

Please note that if you are ordering an assembled product, this may take a little more time.

We use both FedEx and UPS to ship our products, whichever is faster. We ship from central Ohio and on average products take 1 to 4 days to reach your house.

We try our very best to get your beehives to you as fast as possible.

Depending on your order, at times our beehives can be too large to ship in just one package. For your convenience, we will split large orders into multiple boxes that are easy to carry and less accident prone.

Although all of your packages will have left our facility at the same time, please do not be surprised if they do not arrive at the same time. Shipping companies can sometimes be unpredictable, but rest assured your packages will be there soon. Please check your confirmation email for your tracking number(s).

Please order and assemble your hive well in advanced to the arrival of your bees so you know there will be no issues. Poor planning on your part does not render an emergency on ours.

To qualify for free shipping, you must purchase $50 or more in products and live within the continental United States. If your order doesn't quite hit the $50 mark, we have a number of low cost accessories that can be added to your order. As a benefit to you, we also give deep discounts for purchasing in quantities of 2+, 5+, or 10+ of a product so that you can easily meet the $50 minimum on free shipping.

If you wish to have beehives shipped to you out of the United States, then please contact us via email and we'll get you a rate quote.
