NuBee beehives are an affordable way to get a great hive.

These hives are constructed using Fir wood and have dovetail joints for greater durability. They use CellTech foundations that have already been coated in 100% beeswax to ensure your bees quickly develop an even layer of comb. Their foundations are made of food grade plastic and have been colored for useful purposes. The black food grade plastic was chosen for the deep brood frames to make it easier for you to inspect the white brood eggs against a dark background. For the medium honey supers the honey colored food grade plastic maked it easier for you to inspect the honey for debris while it's still in the cells.

With "The Custom Hive" you can get a variety of different options at the bundled "kit price". The more boxes you can get now, the more you'll save in the long run.

Why Choose an 8 Frame Hive?

The major benefit of an 8 frame hive is that it weighs 20% less than a 8 frame hive. Honey is heavy. A 8 frame brood box that is full of honey can weigh up to 90 lbs while medium boxes can weigh up to 60lbs. A 20% difference can save your back.

Why Choose NuBee Hives?

NuBee Langstroth beehives are a favorite first hive among beekeepers because of their high quality and affordable price. Their attention to detail is top notch and can immediately be seen in every aspect of their products. Using a combination of Fir and Pine, these products are a treasure that will last for years to come. When you check out the rest of your hive, we're sure you'll be delighted by the design decisions that led to every detail.

NuBee hive parts are cut using the same industry standard dimensions that all other Langstroth beehive brands use. The parts are interchangeable with any other Langstroth beehive parts you may already have. Do note that 8 frame parts are not interchangeable with 10 frame parts and vice versa.

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.
