Lyson Lightweight 3-Box Complete Hive

A kit with medium boxes, made from polystyrene and lighter than classic wood hives. This hive will help ease strain on your muscles.  


Langstroth polystyrene 10-frame beehive with all medium boxes, manufactured by highly respected Lyson in Poland. Boxes come assembled and this kit comes with all components necessary to start a colony.

Because of Lyson hives’ high R-Value(6+), your bees will be better insulated in Lyson equipment than if in a wooden hive, helping them survive through the harsh winter and stay cool in the heat of summer.

Plastic frame options include black or white foundation color choice. A heavy-wax option is also available, which can help increase your bees’ acceptance and entices them to draw out  combs faster.


  • Outer Cover with 8 polystyrene plugs and 8 plastic venting plugs
  • Cloth inner cover
  • Three Assembled Medium Supers with Latches (to use as Hive Bodies)
  • 30 Assembled Medium Frames
  • Bottom board with removable tray for varroa testing and ventilation

Note: This hive comes unpainted. We recommend painting polystyrene equipment with an exterior latex paint to protect from the elements & extend the life of the hive.
