Love wooden frames but hating wiring foundation? Plastic foundation is the thing for you. Pierco has introduced this plastic foundation especially for wooden frames--equal quality to their high-quality one-piece frames. These are ideal for installing in old wooden frames and are less work than a crimp-wired style--less cleaning! Comes coated with beeswax and works best with grooved top bars. Shallow foundation is not manufactured because of little demand so we cut down medium foundation to size.
Wondering which color is better? We get that question all the time, and there is no right answer. Because bees work in the dark, they don't care about the color of the frames/foundation. Here is how we choose the color in our hives: We use black in all of our brood chamners because, when inspecting brood development, it is easier to see the eggs against a dark background. For our honey supers, we use either color. Some beekeepers prefer the look of capped honey against a light background. We believe capped honey looked great against any background.
Pierco Shallow Foundation Measures 4-3/4" x 16-3/4"
