BeeMax polystyrene hive kits provide more insulation (approximately R-6.5) than wood and are available in 10 frame size only. Better insulation means less temperature fluctuation and consequently a hive can have a bigger brood nest earlier in the critical spring build-up period.
BeeMax polystyrene hives are easy to assemble requiring only glue, and do not require winter wrapping. If you are looking for lightweight equipment with high insulating value you should consider BeeMax polystyrene hive kits.
