Product Details
  • WHAT ARE THEY FOR: These 1 3/8-inch nails are the ideal size for assembling frames securely. Designed to be hand driven with a hammer instead of a nail gun. The head on each nail helps to drive the top bar and bottom bars of each frame into the side bars.
  • HOW MANY DO I NEED?: How many nails you need is dependant on how you assemble your frames and how many frames you need. For one frame with these nails, you will need at least 4 nails and 8 nails at the most.
  • LESS SPLITTING: Our frame nails have a smooth shank and are vinyl coated which makes them easier to use and reduces splitting. These nails are not coated with a material to resist corrosion, but it isn't necessary because they will be inside the hive.
  • VINYL COATED: The coating on these nails helps with two things: easier to drive into the wood and superior grab compared to common nails. The vinyl coating makes these nails perfect for bee frames. 
  • BEST PRACTICES: We highly recommend using wood glue when assembling bee frames. Even with the best nails, frames can come apart easily and it can be a huge mess to try and put them back together when the bees have already built comb. This is the glue that we recommend for assembling both frames and boxes; it is what we use and you won't be disappointed with it. We find that with the addition of this glue, you will only need 4 nails to assemble a single frame.
