Breed 8 queen bees in one full depth brood chamber.
One batch can pay for the initial investment. With a design life of 30 years, it is an excellent investment and a great profit winner.
The Q8 is comprised of 8 independent chambers ready to receive a mature queen cell on a Tri-fold frame. It is supplied as a complete kit, fully assembled with 8 Tri-fold frames, a vented floor, latches and roof.
The unique full depth Tri-fold frame unfolds to a standard size Langstroth frame. Provision is made for 2 wires to secure the wax foundation in each of the 3 sections. When the comb is drawn and has brood, the frame can be removed from the hive with all the bees attached, unclicked and folded to make 3 small frames, then transferred to one compartment of the Q8 nucleus hive for mating queens or raising new colonies. A queen cell that is ready to emerge is inserted into each chamber. Plastic foundation can also be used.
Three removable dividers on each side allow you to choose how many frames you want in each hive space. Easy to overwinter mated queens and supply your nucs in early spring. There are 8 independent top feeders for solid and liquid feed supplements. They incorporate a vent to prevent condensation and all fit neatly inside the vented roof.
Separate entrances with colored landing boards are used to avoid drifting between each chamber. Queen excluders are included, and can be fitted to the entry to prevent accidental contact with other mated queens. They will also stop any wasp entry. Flip-up the landing boards (locking position) to lock the bees in for safe transportation.
