Chemicals (like caustic potash, oxalic acid, formic acid, chlorine etc.) will not corrode them.
Hard-shell outer body by high quality polypropylene (PP) plastic and powerful polyurethane (PU) insulation of high density inside the hive cover and hive body. Polyurethane is inserted as liquid in the body and then expands into a thick layer of foam (same technology as your fridge!). The insulation keeps the bees warm during the winter and cool during the summer, helping them to maintain their desired micro-climate in their hives more easily, without stress and without great energy expenditure! In order to have the same level of insulation with wood you would need 2-3/4" thickness.
All parts can be combined with your Langstroth wooden hives and material.
All parts that come in contact with the bees and their products are from high quality 100% new and virgin food grade plastic.
