Maintenance free and built to last, this food grade polypropylene hive will be an asset to any beekeeper. Each box is blowmolded and injected with polyurethane foam (giving it a r value of 7, the same as 2 3/4 inch wood!) so there are no seams or joints to weaken the plastic or for SHB’s to hide. The hardened plastic is UV stable, antimicrobial, and resistant to chemicals such as oxalic acid. Designed with ease of use in mind, it features two sets of handles, one traditional recessed handle for moving a single box, or a larger protruding handle that allows you to move more than one box at a time without undoing the latches. Stainless steel latches secures each component to the next. Lid has vent holes with covers that open and close easily. You can add wood box supers to the deep bottom boxes for the honey season.
*Kit includes: Lid, Inner Cover which doubles as a Propolis screen, 2 Deep Boxes, Bottom Board, Entrance Reducers.
*Frames and Foundation not included. You can choose from wood with old school wax sheets, wood with plastic sheets of Premier (double waxed) unassembled or assembled, and Acorn one piece plastic frames (that’s a lot of variables).
