Billy Miller, Killinchy beekeeper and native bee enthusiast has made 12 Cedar CDB hives from a 100 year old cedar tree from Co Wicklow, victim of the recent winter storms.
This hand made hive is a real work of art.
Chris Hodges who runs the Killinchy queen rearing group says ‘Given our affection for the native bee we have decided the black bee in the traditional hive is a great option so in the near future a 2014 Queen and a nuc of bees will have a fabulous new home’
If you are interested in purchasing one of these you can contact Billy at Billy@wm-controls.com for details.
