Our 8-frame Beekeeping Advanced Expansion Kit is Perfect for the Ambitious Beekeeper

This 8-frame beekeeping advanced expansion kit comes fully assembled. All you have to do is paint it and add a package of honeybees. This kit includes the following pieces of equipment:

  • Screened bottom board
  • Entrance reducer
  • 2 brood chambers
  • 16 deep frames with Acorn plastic foundation
  • 2 honey supers
  • 16 medium frames with Acorn plastic foundation
  • Inner cover
  • Telescoping lid

The screened bottom board is the base of your hive and will hold above it the brood chamber and honey supers. The screen provides ventilation for the hive during hot months. The reversible entrance reducer prevents robbing from other hives by allowing you to decrease the size of your hive entrance during the winter and when flower nectar is scarce. It also prevents robbing from other hives. The brood chamber is where the queen will lay most of her young. Our brood chamber is made from yellow pine, which is far more durable than white pine. It also is free of knots or defects. The 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. Bees also love it, and accept it well. The honey super – or feeder chamber – is where the bees will store honey for winter. This honey super is also made from yellow pine, and – just like the brood chamber – it has no knots or defects. The inner cover is insulated, and also will keep the bees from “gluing” down the telescoping lid with propolis. It’s made from yellow pine and 1/4 plywood. The telescoping lid sits on top of the hive. It’s heavy duty, and it protects your hive from the elements.
