The Meveda Hive system is made of high density polystyrene, which is commonly used as a house insulation material. To benefit from the good properties of this material, we are using the same material to make lightweight hives with long-term durability. One of the hardest parts in beekeeping is lifting heavy boxes full of honey – every extra kilo makes the lifting process harder. The weight of Meveda Hive Box has been reduced as much as possible, taking the 3/4 Langrsoth Box down to only 1,3kg. Bee colonies in Meveda Hives are feeling well in -30 degrees in winter and +35 degrees during the summer time. Meveda Hives are suitable for every beekeeper!
Meveda offers 5 different Hive parts:

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is rigid and tough closed-cell foam. It is usually white and made of pre-expanded polystyrene beads. EPS is normally used for disposable trays, plates, bowls and cups; and also for take-out food packaging. The hive material has a density of over 100 kg/m3.
All parts are delivered wrapped on EUR pallets (1,2m x 0,8m).
