Plastic Frames with Beeswax-Coated Foundation

A frame and foundation all in one! Give yourself extra time in the bee yard with plastic frames made by Pierco.


Why spend time assembling frames when you could be working your bees and honey? These frames are ready to use and they come pre-coated with beeswax to get your bees started in quickly building comb.


  • No assembly required
  • Reinforced frame ears minimize breakage
  • 15% more brood area/honey production
  • Damaged comb can be scrapped and reused
  • Standard size works with any uncapper
  • Consistent and uniform cell depth–less drone comb

Adding additional wax can greatly improve the acceptance of frames by bees, plus the rate that they will draw them out. Frames are available with a heavier layer of wax.

Alternatively, you can add more wax yourself using a foam paint roller or brush. You will need 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of wax for 10 deep frames. For safety reasons, beeswax needs to be melted in a double boiler or crockpot.
