Product Overview

8 Frame Premium Bee Hive Colony Expanding Kit Painted

8 frame Premium Bee Hive Colony Expanding Kit is made with pine and comes assembled and painted for your convenience - just remove from the shipping box, set up and your ready to add your bees! This beehive is the most popular choice when starting a new hive.

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, 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.

Bee Hive Features:

  • Two Assembled/Painted Deep 9-5/8" 8 Frame Hive Bodies with 16 Assembled Wooden Frames or Plastic One Piece Frames FEATURING Pierco Triple wax coatings
  • Two Assembled/Painted Medium 6-5/8" 8 Frame Honey Supers with 16 Assembled Wooden Frames or Plastic One Piece Frames FEATURING Pierco Triple wax coatings
  • Assembled/Painted Telescoping Cover
  • Notched Wooden Inner Cover

This hive is assembled using commercial grade hive body and honey super parts; expect some knots & cracks on painted surfaces.

    I recently ordered two of these bee hive kits. I received both within 4-5 of ordering. The quality is outstanding and painting looked great. I plan on ordering more in the future.

    I ordered two of these for the 2020 season, and must say I am more than pleased with the quality, will surely be buying more from Lappes in the future. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a complete 8 frame hive setup.
