Add extra insulation to your bee hives with 8/9 frame polystyrene kits from Lyson.
Based on an Australian design, the Lyson 8/9 hive system is made to hold 9 frames in brood boxes and 8 or 9 frames in honey supers.
In brood boxes, we recommend using 9 frames or 8 frames plus two follower boards against the box sides. In honey supers, use 9 frames of foundation or 8 frames of drawn comb. Be sure to space frames evenly.
Lyson 8/9 frame kits feature plastic-reinforced top edges, hive bodies and supers that lock into place without latches, and optional ventilation holes with solid and ventilated plug options available.
Lyson 8/9 frame polystyrene bee hive kits come unpainted, but we recommend painting hive components with exterior-grade latex paint.
*Substitutions for components of kits are welcome — choose your preferred items and give us a call if you don't see what you like online!
