Introduced in 2000, Betterbee® started this line of ultra-insulating polystyrene hive equipment to give honeybee colonies a better chance at overwintering in extreme Northern temperatures, while also helping to keep your colony cool in the hot summer months due to the material from which it's made. "Offers a better hive for wintering bees. This, and more mite resistant bees, may be the salvation of American beekeeping."
The quote above from a long-time manufacturer of wooden beehives reveals how important and revolutionary BeeMax® Polystyrene hive bodies are. Start off your new hobby or update your old one with the best and most up-to-date equipment. Your bees will get off to a faster start in these hives, make more surplus honey for you and your family, and survive the winter better than in a wooden hive.
The fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to expand the number of colonies in your beeyard, this increase kit comes complete with everything you need to get going right away. You'll save a bundle over the price of buying the pieces separately and it's a cinch to assemble.
Note: The Complete BeeMax® Increase Kit is sold unassembled. However, the beauty of our BeeMax™ products is just how easy they are to put together. You'll be up and running in less than a 1/2 hour and each Hive Body and Super take less than a minute to assemble. Far less time than its wooden equivalents.
