Betterbee offers an array of bee hive frame options to fit your budget and time restraints. Our frames will work in any of the bee hive boxes we sell, which is standard Langstroth sized equipment.

On Sizes:

  • Deep Frames measure 9-1/8 inches tall.
  • Medium frames measure 6-1/4 inches tall.
  • Shallow frames measure 5-3/8 inches tall.

On types:

Wood frames come assembled or unassembled. They are built exclusively of eastern pine at [Humble Abodes]. They come with either a grooved (for plastic foundation) or wedged (for wax foundation) top bar. Our bottom bars are single grooved and will accommodate any foundation type.

Plastic frames are one piece molded plastic frames with foundation requiring no assembly. We feel there is a better acceptance by the bees if extra beeswax is brushed or rolled onto the frames.

If you are looking for ease in assembly, one-piece plastic frames is the best bet for you and your bee hive. If you are looking for a more traditional approach, consider buying wood frames.
