I've heard of them but don't know anyone who's used their stuff.

If you're looking for options, you may want to check out Shastina Millwork.  Again, I've never used their boxes, I make my own.... But I have seen their boxes at our LBC, they seem well made and reasonably priced.

Check out Rossman at They have cypress woodenware and I think you might like the prices much better.

todays cypress is not like the old growth cypress of yesteryear. don't waste your money  on it. use a good grade of pine or fir & paint it.

If you're talking about out of Trussville Alabama they are great. Semi small business no hassle type of folks. I got their IPK SHB trap and had an issue with the bees getting through the screen. Emailed them, explained it, they replied asked a couple of questions, I replied, they replied and said it must be a defective screen, we'll send you another trap. In about two, maybe three days I had the trap at the house. I've heard similar stories as well. I will do business with them again. Oh yeah, they also have the instructions on their website to build the beetle trap as well.

I bought my first hive from them three years ago, and it is well made. I would buy from them again and will recommend them....David
