This is the same hive as featured in the basic beginner's kit and includes a complete hive with a single deep hive body. Expect to add additional equipment as the hive grows during the season. A typical colony uses 2 deep boxes for the brood area, and 3-4 medium boxes ("supers") for the honey. It will probably take a colony 2 seasons to create comb on all the frames, and after that, the comb is re-used. Brood comb should be melted down and replaced if it becomes very dark brown. Remember, your equipment will last for years if you paint all exterior surfaces with a few coats of exterior grade paint before installing bees.

The assembled kit includes plastic frames. The unassembled kit features wooden frames and waxed plastic foundation.
