Essentials Kit: 8FR Unassem
This 8 Frame unassembled kit comes complete with the essentials you need (except the bees) to get started right away. If you are catching swarms or making splits, this is a perfect way to start them off. Later, you can either reunite colonies or top with additional stories. Comes with all the components needed to start a colony quickly.

When chosing plastic frames or plastic foundation, we highly recommend that you apply extra beeswax to the plastic to increase the acceptance by the bees and to entice them to draw it out faster. You can buy beeswax and paint it on yourself (melt it in a double boiler and use a foam paintbrush), or melt down the beeswax cappings and scrapings you saved from last year and paint it on using a foam paintbrush.
