Stewarton Hive

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A hive largely and successfully used in Scotland, it is octagonal, and the “Quinby hive” of America is much deeper from back to front than it is wide. The Stewarton is not properly a frame, but a bar-hive, although frames are sometimes fitted to it. It usually consists of three octagon breeding-boxes, 14 inches in diameter by 6 inches deep, each furnished with nine bars placed equidistant, the spaces between being occupied by movable slides of wood working in grooves in the bars.” — Encyclopedia Britanica, 1893
