A great labor saving device. We switched to these in our own outfit in 1990's and still remain impressed. Why spend your time assembling frames when you could be working your bees and selling honey? Fully assembled and ready to put in the hive! Cell size - 5.1- 5.4
Seven reasons to buy pierco frames: 1. No assembly required - ready to use 2. reinfornced frame ears prevent breakage 3. Beeswax coating is better accepted by bees 4. 15% more brood area/honey production 5. Impervious to wax moths and rodents 6. Ideal for automatic cappers and hand capppers 7. Consistent & uniform cell depth - less drone comb
Hint 1: We've found that our bees seem to prefer the waxed version of these frames.
Hint 2: To improve accepetance, we dip pierco frames in sugar syrup before introducing them to the hive.
Hint 3: Efficient wax building is a genetic trait; some hives are better at it than others. If you have a hive that draws Pierco Foundation well and another that builds Brace Comb well, switch the supers to improve the acceptance of wax frames.
