The screened bottom board acts as the base of your hive. It holds the brood chamber and honey supers. The screened bottom allows for ventilation during the hot summer months. The reversible entrance reducer allows you to reduce the size of your hive entrance during the winter when flower nectar is scarce. It also helps to prevent robber bees from other hives entering your hive. The brood chamber is where your queen lays most of her young. Our brood chambers are made from select grade yellow pine, meaning they have no knots or defects. Our deep wooden frames and medium wooden frames are select grade and include Acorn’s triple-waxed plastic foundation, which is the best in the industry. Your bees will accept it right away. The honey supers are where your bees will store honey for the winter. It is made of select grade yellow pine also. The inner cover is insulated and keeps the bees from ‘gluing’ down the telescoping lid with propolis. Our inner cover is made from yellow pine and plywood. The telescoping lid sits on top of your hive. Its heavy-duty construction protects your hive from the elements.
