Everything will be assembled with a combination of exterior non toxic Titebond 3 glue, stainless screws, galvanized and standard staples. Acorn foundation will be installed in the frames and One Piece Acorn frames come ready to go. Due to the delicate nature of wax, frames will be assembled but wax will be shipped separately. Nails for pinning wax will be included but support pins/ embedding wire should be ordered separately.
Because there are so many different combinations of boxes for hives, we can not list them all. If you are interested in a combo you do not see listed, feel free to reach out to us and we will get a price together for you.
