The Ceramic Beehives in Israel

We are extremely happy to share with you that the new models of the CERAMIC BEEHIVES are already delivered to its first beekeepers in Israel.


The new models are completely customized for the specifics of the apiculture in Israel where are preferably used white beehives with shorter legs and put on a platform to be able to practice mobile beekeeping.


Israel is home of around 1100 species of bees the most common of which is the Italian Apis Mellifera Ligustica - a subspecies of the western honey bee.

The "Land of Milk an Honey" has more than 530 registered beekeepers who are taking care of around 120 000 beehives in the country.


Apart from the unique citrus scent taste of the honey and the New Year's honey cake, Israel is famous with its numerous start-up companies in the field of apiculture. They dedicated their products to high-tech solutions which enable constant monitoring of different welbeing indicators inside the hive; allow calculating the harvesetd honey and the pollen flow; provide solutions for hive management systems which allow the beekeepers to track and mitigate the spread of the predatory Asian Giant Hornet or optimize the delivery of anti-Varroa compounds. Now our product will be one of the innovations available on the Israeli market!


Another reason why we are so excited to deliver the ceramic beehives in Israel is that actually here are found some of the evidence for the ancient apiculture which used clay and ceramics for beekeeping (we told you about this not long time ago).

We believe that this is a big step for the modern ceramic beehives and we feel impatient to hear and share with you the feedback of the beekeepers about their experience using the ceramic beehives in the specific weather conditions of Israel. Stay updated!
