We sell plastic rod supports for beehives in bundles of 20 rods (enough for 10 frames) and are added after beeswax foundation is installed. We recommend using 2 rods per frame for all frame sizes.
These support rods are added after beeswax foundation is installed. The rods are pushed through the holes in the end bars and secured with a locking washer (included). The bees readily incorporate the rods into the comb. Installing these rods is much quicker than wiring frames. No embedding is required.
