Utah Hive Box for Comb Honey – 2013

The Utah Hive Box is quite unique.  It is a true half Langstroth box, 8 1/8″ across and allows for frames to sit side-by-side or end-to-end.  This style of box can be either a medium or deep Langstroth box.  Each individual box or modular component can be removed, as long as locking clips are in place and replaced without disturbing the rest of the hive.  The comb frame is unique too and is a cross between a top bar hive and a regular frame, it needs no foundation!

The Utah Hive Box for comb is a new generation application.  Instead of harvesting frames, uncapping, spinning, renting or buying an extractor, filtering, bottling and paying for bottles, we have this simple process. Place the box on your hive, have the bees fill it, remove and place frames with honeycomb in packages, READY TO SELL!  Place a new frame in the box and repeat it!

If we do things the way we always have, things will remain as difficult and costly.  We have to think smarter. The market tells us they don’t trust our bottled honey as it is blended with who knows what.  Honeycomb is clean and attractive to the consumer and now it is easy for the beekeeper.
