Propola Hive Body Assembled

$36.95

FOR THE HIVE, NOT THE HUMANS.

Since their origins, honey bees have been enveloping their nests with a natural, resinous substance called propolis. Research has shown that this propolis envelope is a critical part of the colony’s natural defense against disease.1 The Propola hive body, with its roughened interior walls, restores the natural propolis envelope inside the Langstroth hive — giving bees the natural habitat they know and need.

RESTORE THE PROPOLIS ENVELOPE
The modern, smooth-walled beehive discourages bees from coating their hives in propolis. The Propola hive features roughened and grooved interior walls to encourage propolis collection and restore the propolis envelope inside the hive.2 This creates a healthy, stable environment for your bees.

RESIST DISEASE

Research has shown that the Propola hive leads to many individual- and colony-level health benefits. The antimicrobial properties of the propolis envelope significantly reduce the presence of American foulbrood3, European foulbrood4, and chalkbrood diseases, among others.5 There is even some evidence that propolis lowers the fertility of Varroa destructor.6 Perhaps most importantly, the propolis envelope greatly reduces bees’ immune response, meaning your bees will feel healthier and be more productive.
