Get everything you need to start, or add a hive, and save money by doing so! We let you pick what options work best for you while making sure you get everything you will need now, and in the future (honey supers) so that way you don’t have to buy components separately, which cost more.

Note:

  • When choosing plastic frames or plastic foundation, we highly recommend applying extra beeswax to the frames. This increases the acceptance of the frames by the bees and entices them to draw the frames out faster. Assembled frames with extra wax are available for purchase or you can apply the wax yourself (Instructions for Applying Additional Wax).
