ALL NEW!! All of the frames in 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, black deep / yellow honey super, or black deep / white honey super. 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.
The 10 Frame Wax Dipped Hobby Bee Hive Colony Expanding Kit not only offers functionality but also durability. The wax coating on the beehives provides a natural wood finish that acts as a preservative, protecting the wood from rotting and warping. This makes the boxes maintenance-free and long-lasting. The wax dipping process involves submerging the hives in 320 degrees F wax, ensuring that all moisture is removed and replaced with wax. With this superior wax coating, there is no need to paint the box, making it an efficient and cost-effective choice for beekeepers. Please note: some surfaces on the boxes might look like there is no wax coating; there is wax covering all of the box surfaces, in some spots the wax might have soaked into the wood more than others.
