Our Warré hives are manufactured from Canadian Western Red Cedar.
We only use stainless steel wood screws in the construction process, nails or staples are never used.
Canadian cedar is slower grown, is virtually knot and imperfection free and results in very stable and beautiful looking hive.
There is no need to paint Cedar, the wood needs to breath, however we do recommend a coat of either Treatex Cedar Oil, raw Linseed or Tung oil. Treatex Cedar Oil ™ penetrates deeply into timber surfaces and in a similar way to bark, attaches to the wood capillaries providing protection against extreme climate conditions. It is manufactured on a base of natural sustainable raw material including sunflower oil, safflower oil and soybean oil.
At the Warré shop we aim to provide you with what you wish, not as some manufactures do, with what we think you should have. Choose from the various options to select the perfect combination of hive components that suit you.
Our Warré hives are made to order, so please allow four to six weeks from order before you receive your hive. It is important to plan ahead to avoid disappointment, so please order in plenty of time well before you actually require the hive.
