Assessment of the usefulness of styrofoam hives on a movable platform

Assessment of the usefulness of styrofoam hives on a movable platform

Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe 29: 169-185

The performance of colonies in styrofoam hives (Langstroth dimensions) was compared with that of colonies in normal wooden hives. Eighteen styrofoam hives were kept on a single movable platform; the wooden hives were on individual stands. The styrofoam was not toxic to the bees and no significant differences were found between colonies in the 2 types of hive.
