Complete BeeMax® Essential Hive

A cost-effective hive kit with all the basics, including an assembled hive with a single deep hive body and plastic frames.


Made of lightweight polystyrene with an impressive R-value of 6.5, honey bee colonies in these hives often have an easier time of overwintering in extreme northern temperatures, and in regulating their hives in the hot summer months.

With all of the basic needs to get your hive started, the BeeMax® Essentials Kit Includes:

  • BeeMax® Telescoping Outer Cover
  • Wooden Inner Cover For Beemax
  • 1 BeeMax® Deep Hive Body Assembled
  • 10 Plastic Black Deep Frames
  • BeeMax® Bottom Board

The hive body does come assembled in this kit, but please note: BeeMax® hive bodies should be painted with exterior latex paint to provide protection against UV rays.
