A lightweight kit, easy on your back!
Made of lightweight polystyrene with an impressive R-value of 6.5, honey bee colonies have a better chance at overwintering in extreme northern temperatures, and staying cool in the hot summer months.
The Essentials Kit Includes:
- One BeeMax outer cover
- One wooden inner cover for BeeMax
- Two BeeMax deep hive bodies with plastic frame rests
- BeeMax bottom board
- Mouse guard for BeeMax hives
- Your choice of 20 deep frames
- An optional varroa monitoring screen (varroa screen requires assembly, wooden shim screws included but tack/staples for plastic supports are not included)
- BeeMax hive bodies should be painted with exterior latex paint to help protect the polystyrene from the sun’s UV rays and extend the life of the hive
