Plastic Medium Frame
These frames are fully assembled and ready to go, although we do recommend you coat with additional wax! Why spend your time assembling frames when you could be working your bees and honey?
Plastic Frames Feature:
No assembly required
Reinforced frame ears minimize breakage
15% more brood area/honey production
Damaged comb can be scraped and reused
Standard size works with any uncapper
Consistent and uniform cell depth--less drone comb.
Hint: 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. Plastic frames with additional wax are available for purchase or you can paint the wax on yourself using a foam 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 crock pot.
