- Shipping & Returns
This Complete 8-frame Beekeeping Kit Is A Great Choice For Any Prospective Beekeepers
Our complete 8-frame beekeeping kit is the most comprehensive and cost-effective starter kit around. Like our other starter kits, it comes fully assembled. All you need to do is add some paint and a package of bees, and you’re good to go. This kit is made up of the following components, listed here from the bottom to the top of the hive:
- Screened bottom board
- Entrance reducer
- Deep brood chamber
- 10 deep frames with Acorn plastic foundation
- Inner cover
- Telescoping lid
The screened bottom board acts as the base of your hive. It supports the brood chamber and super, and is ventilated for those hot summer months. The reversible entrance reducer allows you to reduce the size of your hive entrance. This is mostly done during winter or other periods of nectar scarcity. It can also help prevent intruders getting into your hive. The brood chamber is where your queen lays her eggs. Our deep brood chambers are made of
heavy-dutyyellow pine and are extremely longlasting. Our deep wooden frames are select grade and include Acorn’s triple-waxed plastic foundation, which is the best in the industry. Your bees will love it, and accept it right away. The inner cover is insulated and keeps the bees from ‘gluing’ down the telescoping lid with propolis. The telescoping lid is the top of your hive. It protects the rest of your hive from the elements.
