Started with 4 stands in January 2017, 2 NUCS, One 10-FRAME, & One Double Hive Stand. Liked the workmanship in the build. Liked the very well designed protection from ants. Liked the 5.5" height AGL giving more flexibility for multi-supered hives. Price is appropriate. Service is OUTSTANDING..Just bought 5 more Single 10-frame Stands.

I purchased two of the Defy Ant Stands for 10-frame hives. The service and delivery were excellent, including order confirmation and delivery tracking. The stands are well-made and a perfect fit. The important thing is that they stopped ants and other bugs from entering the hives. I highly recommend this stand.
