About “Valkyrie” Long Hive

Our Valkyrie is built to last, with a two-year warranty on the working lid and hinges. Could it withstand an IED…?  Sort of looks that way, and that’s how Bruce builds them, so your local weather conditions shouldn't pose a problelm.  The Valkyrie holds 24 STANDARD DEEP frames, which is recommended.  Until your colony builds-out all 24 frames, use the extra room to the right for storing tools, supplies, or installing a feeder on the INSIDE of the hive body, safely away from robbers, skunks or rodents.  Each Valkyrie lid has an installed bracket for holding frames, bee brushes, hive tools, etc.  Our six gorgeous lid colors were chosen to blend in with just about any landscape or garden color scheme, and custom colors are available.  Once you’ve added your own paint or finish (please remember: within a week of delivery is best), these lids will remain very pleasing to the eye.

Did we say that the Valkyrie Long Hive 

was built to last?


Check out these pics from Joel T of Missoula:  a Grizzly took out his Valkyrie!  The screened and solid drawers were destroyed so we sent him a drawer assembly, with the new PVC solid drawers. Everything else, (hive body and lid) was in working order and ready for his new colony! 

Take THAT, Grizzly Adams!

Yes, those are bear claw puncture holes!
