This Basic Essentials Kit includes two deep hive bodies. Expect to add additional equipment as the hive grows during the season. A typical colony uses 2 deep hive bodies for the brood area, and 3 medium boxes ("supers") for storing honey. It will probably take a colony 2 seasons to create comb on all these frames, and after that, the comb is re-used. Brood comb should be melted down and replaced if it becomes very dark brown.

The Essentials Kit includes:

  • Telescoping outer cover
  • Wooden inner cover
  • 2 deep hive bodies
  • 20 deep frames
  • Reversible bottom board and/or varroa monitoring equipment

Reminder: Your equipment will last for years if you paint all exterior surfaces with a few coats of exterior grade paint before installing bees.
