WHAT IS IT? This 5' long stand is a platform for your beehives and is placed directly on the ground, keeping your hives off the ground and at a comfortable working height. The platform raises your hives 14-inches of the ground, which is the perfect height to place your hives and still keep them high enough so skunks and other pests won't bother them.
LOCAL PICKUP ONLY: These stands are only available for local pickup at our store right now and are not being shipped directly to customers.
PRESSURE TREATED: Since the lumber in this hive stand isn't a part of the hive, we have used pressure treated lumber to make this platform stand up to the elements. The wood is ground rated and we have been using these stands ongoing since 2014 and they are in great shape.
FOLDING: When the stand was designed, we wanted to incorporate a feature that makes it easier to move. Both sets of legs on our hive stand pivot up into the platform for easy transport. We have even put these in the trunk of a civic (with the seats folded down of course)!
3 HIVES: The stand is designed to hold 3, 10-frame hives with several inches between each one. It will also hold 8 frame and 5 frame hives because of it's design. The stand is designed to be strong enough hold the weight of 3, 10 frame hives with honey boxes.
GALVANIZED STEEL HARDWARE: All the hardware, screws, and glue used to assemble the stand is outdoor rated and rust-resistant. You don't have to worry about it falling apart on you.
