AZ beehive with 2 boxes.
The AZ beehive is from Slovenian origin, designed by Anton Znidarsic, which makes it possible to work on your bees from behind. This beehive has been used in Slovenia for over 100 years. The many colored beehives now belong to the cultural heritage of that country.
The success of this hive lies in the endless benefits. Everything is already in place and the beekeeper doesn't have to drag extra boxes and supers. Because you can work on the bees from behind, you don't have to lift those heavy honey supers. Once installed, it is very pleasant to work with, especially for your back! These beehives also require much less space and are stackable. If you use these beehives in a garden shed or bee house, the beekeeper will always be out of the sun or rain.
There are also numerous advantages for the bees: the double-walled front side ensures that the bees are much less susceptible to heat or cold differences. Because the hives are stacked on and next to each other, the bees also keep each other warm in the winter, which ensures better development in the winter. And because you can work from behind, you don't have to "break open" the hive, which causes much less stress for the bees.
