10 Frame Wax Dipped Two Story Bee Hive Colony Expanding Kit
Looking to start beekeeping? The 10 Frame Wax Dipped Two Story Bee Hive Colony Expanding Kit is a perfect solution for beginners. This kit comes with everything you need to set up a thriving bee colony, including two wax-dipped deep brood boxes, your choice of wooden or plastic frames with triple waxed foundation (the best in the industry!), a solid wax-dipped bottom board, and a wax dipped migratory lid. The pine construction of the hive has been wax-dipped to ensure durability and protection against rotting. Get started with beekeeping today with this convenient and high-quality kit.
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, or black deep / yellow 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.
With this colony expanding kit, you have a strong foundation to start your beekeeping journey. However, as honey season approaches, you may need to expand your hive by purchasing additional honey super boxes from us. These extra boxes provide more space for the bees to store their surplus honey. Designed for ease of setup, this kit comes fully assembled, wax-dipped, and ready to be populated with bees. Join the world of beekeepers today and enjoy the rewarding experience of harvesting your own honey.
10 Frame Wax Dipped Bee Hives Feature:
- Solid Wax Dipped Bottom Board
- Standard Entrance Reducer (Entrance Reducer Is Not Wax Dipped)
- (2) Wax Dipped Deep Brood Box with your choice of 10 assembled wooden frames with Pierco triple waxed yellow or black foundation, or 10 triple waxed Pierco Plastic one piece yellow or black frames
- Wax Dipped Migratory Lid
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. This hive is assembled using commercial grade hive body and honey super parts; expect some knots & cracks on wax dipped surfaces. Please note: splits from stapling are common on frames due to the wood grain and do not compromise the structure or useability of the frame. We do not replace or refund the frames due to this.
