This 8 Frame unassembled kit has everything (except the bees) to get you started on your beekeeping adventures. It is made from long-lasting Eastern Pine and has all the necessities from top to bottom. We've added a Varroa screen for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and a 3 gallon hive top feeder.
When choosing plastic frames or plastic foundation, we highly recommend that you apply extra beeswax to the plastic to increase the acceptance by the bees and to entice them to draw it out faster. You can buy beeswax and paint it on yourself (melt it in a double boiler and use a foam paintbrush), or melt down the beeswax cappings and scrapings you saved from last year and paint it on using a foam paintbrush.
