BeeMax® Light-Weight Kit
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. A long-time manufacturer of wooden beehives said, "BeeMax® offers a better hive for wintering bees. This, and more mite resistant bees, may be the salvation of American beekeeping."
This quote illustrates how 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.
This kit is perfect for those who want to get started quickly, but wish to be kinder to their backs. Smaller brood chambers can mean more manageable colonies. We have added a third medium super, which serves as the same space for the bees as two traditional deep hive bodies. Available in 10 Frame only.
The BeeMax® Light-Weight Kit is sold with unassembled Medium Honey Supers. The beauty of our BeeMax® products is just how easy they are to put together. Each Super takes less than a minute to assemble (far less time than their wooden equivalents).
