This is, by all counts, the ultimate in hive stands. Called that by the manufacturer, we will underscore it. It won’t collapse, rust or rot. It can be filled with sand for added stability and screwed to the hive for better security. Gets hives away from pests such as skunks and raises to better working height. It even comes with attached, swing-out frame rests with right or left hand options. Sound ultimate? Absolutely! And we haven’t even sung all its praises. Get one (or more) and see for yourself.
