Plastic Deep Frame
A great labor saving device. We use these frames and like them. Why spend your time assembling frames when you could be working your bees and honey? There is no assembly required, but we feel that there is better acceptance by the bees if extra beeswax is brushed or rolled onto the frames (See Hint 1 below).
Plastic Frames Feature:
No assembly required
Reinforced frame ears minimize breakage
15% more brood area/honey production
Damaged comb can be scrapped and reused
Standard size works with any uncapper
Consistent and uniform cell depth--less drone comb.
Hint 1: These frames are pre-coated with beeswax. We have found that adding additional wax greatly improves the acceptance of these frames by the bees and the rate that they will draw them out. We can do it for you or we suggest melting beeswax and applying with a small paint roller or brush. You will need 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of wax for 10 deep frames. For safety reasons, beeswax needs to be melted in a double boiler or crockpot.
