10 Frame Beekeeping Kit
These 10-frame bee hive kits are made from solid cypress wood and are designed to be exactly what a new colony from a package, swarm, or nucleus hive needs during its first year. These complete hive kits include all the pieces the bees need to live in, including the telescoping cover, inner cover, cypress boxes, grooved top/grooved bottom frames, double wax plastic foundation, entrance reducer, and a screened bottom board.
These bee hives are designed after the Langstroth hive and have all the boxes honey bee colonies need for their brood. It is important to get an additional honey box or medium box for when your bees start to produce excess honey.
