About this item
The closure method requires fiddling tabs into slots while your hands are in contact with bees, and there is no way to close the entrance. Also, the tabs that hold it together are not secure, requiring the addition of gaffa tape to ensure a bee-tight box.
Took a while to construct the first one, but once you've got the hang of it, things move faster. Haven't yet used them for transporting bees, but they are handy for storing spare frames.
Fit for purpose but requires folding construction from the accompanying plans which are easy to follow
The ingenious design keeps itself together. The video is much easier to follow than the instructions, but it all works well and the finished box is a good fit for 5 14x12 frames.
I have bought about 30-40 of them but only put 2 together at the moment
I am not sure about the corners don't know whether the bee's could get out in transit
So personally I will gaffer tape the corners and side joints up on any I plan on selling
