I was browsing a Betterbee catalog when I saw a Beemax hive for sale. I wondered what it was and my research didn't help me much. What are the pros and cons of one? Should I buy a Beemax or a wooden hive? Thanks for your help!

I vote for wood also, never seen a feral hive in a plastic tree!

Never had tried the plastic myself, but just not into it.

Yes they would insulate from the winters cold. BUT I bet wood boxes with a stryfoam sheath around it in the winter would last 10 times longer. best to just cover the wood box with snow, ma natures insulation.
