It is often said that if you are a beekeeper and you don't have a bad back, stay in it long enough and you will. Not any more! With our complete line of 8 frame equipment, you can enjoy the pleasures of beekeeping without the chiropractic bills. If you have outgrown the days when you were invincible, or even if you haven't reached that age yet, 8 frame equipment is for you. The 8 frame supers can weigh 10-20 lbs less than 10 frame equipment and not only are the boxes lighter, they are smaller and easier to carry.

The professional grade kit made from long-lasting 7/8" Eastern Pine includes everything you need to start your first year of beekeeping, excluding the bees. We've also added a Varroa Screen for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and a 3 gallon hivetop feeder. It comes either fully assembled (all hive bodies frame and supers already assembled and ready to use) with plastic frames or unassembled like this, with a nail kit, wooden frames and crimp-wired foundation.

• Galvanized Telescoping Outer Cover
