- Made with Platinum Extra Heavy Wax Coated Foundation!
- Grooved top bar / grooved bottom bar frames come pre-assembled with a sheet of your choice of wax coated black or white plastic foundation.
- Plastic foundation sheets have a heavy coating of beeswax which promotes a higher acceptance rate with bees compared to other standard beeswax coated plastic foundation. They have a special scent added to the wax coating; black smells like their brood nest, and white smells like honey, which also helps acceptance.
- The black frames make 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.
- Wooden frames work with any 8 frame or 10 frame 6-5/8" equipment.
