Fight Varroa And Raise Superior Queens With Acorn Drone Frames


  • Available for deep and medium supers
  • Bright lime green color for easy recognition
  • High-quality beeswax
  • Available with extra heavy wax


    Use Acorn drone frames to fight Varroa mites and raise superior queens. Drone frames are larger than worker cells, though not as large as queen cells. By installing a drone frame, you’ll have nothing but drone comb. This is a popular and effective way of trapping Varroa mites, which prefer laying in drone cells, as an Integrated Pest Management technique. Slot this frame in, take it out when it’s full of uncapped cells, scrape all the comb off as waste, and pop it back in. With its bright lime green color, there’s never a risk of extracting the wrong frame. When raising queens you can also use this Drone Frame to increase your drone populations. This will help increase the genetic diversity required for well-mated queens. Make sure to select your desired frame size at checkout.

    This IPM technique works great in conjunction with our other pest control products. Check out these Mite Away Quick Strips and this Apiguard Varroa Mite Treatment for best results.

    I am excited to try out these drone frames in my second deep to attempt to keep the mites at bay. These were delivered fast and are great quality. This company also provides great customer service, I have purchased many items.
