Western Red Cedar is one of the world's most durable exterior woods (not to mention most beautiful). Natural resistance to moisture, decay and insect damage has long made Western Red Cedar the premier choice for exterior use. Cedar fibers in the heartwood contain natural preservatives that are resistant to decay-causing fungi and completely safe for the health of the bees. Beehives made from Western Red Cedar are the best housing that you can provide for your bees. Western Red Cedar will last for decades, even in harsh environments.I want you to know that I have you covered! All the hives are handmade by me one piece at a time, using the best materials possible. I pride myself on being attentive to the details and becoming a master at my craft. Even though I continually strive for perfection and every effort is made to create only the best, there may be the occasional blemish (minor scratch or chip) that should not be misconstrued as a flaw and will in no way affect performance. These are what make each hive beautiful, charming, and unique. With that said, it is quite difficult (if not impossible) to make two identical hives, so your hive will vary slightly in shade, color, and physical characteristics.
