BS Honey Bees
BS Honey Bees of Cheltenham is a specialist supplier of fully working hives, bees and Carniolan queens.
The Poly Hive manufactured by Columbus is BS Honey Bees’ best seller because it is lightweight, extremely durable and has excellent thermal properties, suitable for the UK climate.
Poly boxes are ideal for overwintering colonies and have become hugely popular in the UK over the past five years. The polystyrene used is recyclable, up to three times stronger than that used in packaging and can last up to 30 years when protected by smooth masonry paint.
Black Mountain Honey
Black Mountain Honey, founded in 2015, is a family run, commercial bee farming business, producing top quality, raw honey from local bees. Every jar of honey can be traced back to the apiary where it was produced.
Black Mountain Honey is dedicated to increasing biodiversity and improving pollinator habitats across North Wales.
Their dedicated YouTube channel features beekeeping tutorials, competitions, instructional videos, and product reviews, such as this one from beekeeper Laurence Edwards.
‘’BS Honey Bees have come up with a market leading Poly Hive, there is just nothing I don’t like about it, it’s literally a perfect hive, without doubt it’s at the very, very top end of the Poly hive market’’.
Laurence Edwards – Black Mountain Honey
‘’We are very proud to be working with BS Honey Bees on such a fantastic project and are very grateful to Black Mountain Honey for their fantastic review. The BS Honey Bees Poly Hive manufactured by us is the way forward as it costs less than normal hives, is durable and long-lasting, recyclable and easier to manage’’
