The mini OATH suits species with naturally smaller nests such as australis, clypearis, mellipes, etc...
Like the normal size OATHs, the Mini OATHs come in both a two section standard with observation window and a three section honey version (but are 200x200mm).
The shorter and flatter size reduces the volume. The internal volume of a two-section mini OATH and a three-section mini Honey OATH is 3 litres or 4 litres respectively, which is approximately half the internal volume of a normal hive. These hives are not suitable for Tetragonula carbonaria or hockingsi.
If you purchase a roof along with your mini OATH hive, we will send you the matching mini roof.
