Deep Hive Bodies traditionally serve as brood chambers, the boxes placed above the bottom board that remain on the hives year round where brood is produced. This box is assembled and fits 8 deep frames which are 9-1/8 inches tall.
Select Grade Wood vs. Commercial Grade Wood:
This refers to the grade of wood used to make your woodenware. You have a choice of Select (possessing only the occasional small knot) and Commercial (which will possess a greater number of solid knots). If you are painting your woodenware, Commercial grade is the typical choice. If you are varnishing your wood, Select is a great option.
3/4 inch or 7/8 inch Wall Thickness:
Our 3/4 inch boxes are the most common sizing and offer a cost savings. The 7/8 inch boxes offer a heavier wall thickness. 7/8 inch is the traditional wall thickness that Betterbee has carried for many years. Both sizes fit all our wooden hive components and are compatible with each other.
