How-To Videos

Our customers choose NBS for the quality and craftsmanship of all our hives and parts. We’ve been making hives for almost 40 years, so whether you choose to buy your hive and parts assembled or flat-packed, you’ll receive the same exceptional finish.

However, many of our customers have asked for a little assistance above and beyond our instruction documents, which are supplied with every order... And we’ve listened! In response, we’ve created 6 step-by-step video tutorials, which will help to guide you through the construction of your hive components, from frames, to roofs & brood chambers and beyond.
