BeeMax polystyrene bee hive kits come in a 10 frame size and provide more insulation value than wood (approximately R-6.5). Better insulation means less temperature fluctuation, so a hive can make a bigger brood nest earlier in the critical spring buildup period.
BeeMax polystyrene bee hives are easy to assemble — requiring only glue — and do not need winter wrapping. If you're looking for lightweight equipment with a high insulating value, consider BeeMax hives.
*Substitutions for components of hive kits are welcome! Choose the items you prefer and give us a call if you don't see what you'd like online.
