A migratory top is considered the most traditional of all tops available on the market. Migratory tops work best in areas or seasons that aren’t very wet and rainy. The only pitfall to using these tops is that they can tend to get soggy and or warped when used in consistently rainy and wet weather. They are the preferred top for migratory beekeepers since their hives are always moving to the warmest regions of the country and generally don’t experience much rainy weather.
Our assembled migratory tops feature cleats on the front and back which allows for you to easily slide the lid to the left or right with less disruption to your colony of bees. It is placed on top of the hive with the cleats facing up. They are made from a strong, sturdy pine. They come fully assembled and we do recommend to paint the exterior for extra protection from the weather.
