Product Overview

10 Frame Painted Honey Bee Swarm Catching Single Story Bee Hive

If you want to put out a trap to catch a swarm of bees in, then our 10 frame swarm catching special is the hive that you need! To use as a swarm catcher, simply place the hive on a pallet or on cement blocks wherever you would like to permanently keep the hive - there is no need to place the box up high in a tree. The heavy wax coating on the plastic foundation of the frames will lure the scout bees right to the hive, and in turn, the scout bees will bring the swarm right to the box. As an added bonus, wax moths and other creatures are unable to damage the plastic foundation in the frames, unlike beeswax foundation.

ALL NEW!! All of our bee hives come with your choice of Pierco Triple Waxed plastic one piece frames, or assembled wooden frames with Pierco Triple Waxed foundation! These frames / foundations have the heaviest coating of 100% beeswax available on the market!! The heavier coating of wax helps promote the bees acceptance, and the fresh, natural aroma of the wax helps encourage the bees to start working on it (prevents bees from leaving the hive after being installed, unlike lower grade foundations with less wax coating, found in cheaper hive setups). Your choice of all natural yellow, like beeswax, or black deep. Why settle for less?

Please note: The difference in colors has nothing to do with the bees acceptance; it all has to do with the preference of each beekeeper. The black foundation makes it easy to find out if your queen is alive and laying well: it is easy to see the small white eggs against the black background, so you don't have to see your queen to know that you have one. It also makes it easier to tell if you have a drone layer. Yellow foundation is more like actual beeswax, and it is quite often more preferred by a lot of our customers.

    Great quality and value

    A very well-built and well priced package. I have purchased a number of these and they are durable. I'll have to mention how good the foundation in the frames is as well. The triple wax coating has really been a boon for the bees. They have drawn it out at all times of the year. Very happy with this product

    Square corners, interchangeable with other hive parts. Sealed paint over entire exterior, none inside. This product sets the bar for a complete hive.
