Complete with everything you need (except the bees) to get you started on your beekeeping adventure. Beemax hives diverge from the beekeeping tradition of woodenware, making use of modern materials in that of ultra-insulating polystyrene to give honey bee colonies a better chance at overwintering in extreme northern temperatures, and staying cool in the hot summer months.

Join a revolution and get your bees off to a faster start so they can make more surplus honey for you and your family, and survive the winter better than in a wooden hive!

A Few Things to Note About This Kit:

  • This is a 10 frame hive kit (industry standard). What that means is that the hive body (box where bees live), is able to hold 10 frames (rectangular structure that contains foundation which bees build comb on).
  • When choosing plastic frames or plastic foundation, we highly recommend applying extra beeswax to the frames. This increases the acceptance of the frames by the bees and entices them to draw the frames out faster. Assembled frames with extra wax are available for purchase or you can apply the wax yourself (Instructions for Applying Additional Wax).
  • Frames, the hive body, and other components come assembled, but beekeepers will have to arrange them as parts are moveable and not bound together
  • BeeMax hive bodies should be painted with exterior latex paint to help protect the polystyrene from the sun's UV rays and extend the life of the hive
