Hive Stands Designed By Beekeepers for Beekeepers
As a Manufacturer and 3rd Generation Beekeeper I can truly say our stands have been designed, tested and developed by Beekeepers for Beekeepers. Our Hive Stands were one the very first production Hive Stands with built in reservoirs offered for sale directly to Beekeepers. Since that time many have tried to copy our design which can now be found in many places on the net. Unfortunately as happens when designs are copied the knockoffs being produced are built without proper testing and engineering which in turn leads to either the product not working properly or the product failing. Honey production colonies can weigh up to several hundred pounds during a strong honey flow and Hive Stands without the proper design can fail leading to colonies falling over or even lead to serious injury. Its never a good idea to set a hive stand directly on the ground. Hive Stands should have a barrier such as treated wood placed between the stand and the ground to prevent the metal from premature rusting and to give the base a larger foot print to prevent the stand legs from sinking during wet weather and tipping over. The use of water as an ant barrier in the reservoir is highly discouraged as water can lead to robbing from nearby feral or managed colonies. Water placed directly below a colony can become contaminated if using screened bottom boards which can lead to spreading disease. No matter whose hive stand you purchase always look for strength, function and most of all don't buy just because of a low price. More often than not you get what you pay for.

Zinc Clad Coating on Out-Back Hive Stand Reservoirs
All Out-Back Hive Stand Reservoirs are coated with a Zinc Clad Coating that aids in preventing rust before the finale Industrial Paint Coating is applied. Zinc Clad Coatings are actually what is called a self sacrificing coating to protect steel from rusting. The coating itself is attacked before allowing the steel to rust.

from nesting under colonies. Open bottom design is ideal for using screened bottom boards which also aids in ventilation on extremely hot days.

An extender kit is available for this stand which allows the Beekeeper to add additional sections as their apiary grows. To lengthen the stand the end brace is removed and replaced by a T-Section.
