Our bee hive kits for beginners equipment:
- Screened bottom board with insert
- Wooden entrance feeder (jar not included)

- 2 brood chambers

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. An insert to close up the bottom board is included.
The wooden entrance feeder is perfect for feeding your bees during the spring and when there’s a shortage of nectar in midsummer or late fall. The reversible entrance reducer prevents 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 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 wooden and metal queen keeps the queen from getting into your honey supers to lay eggs, making it much easier to gather honey after the spring flow.
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 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.
