Full Depth Timber Kitset Frame Grooved

$1.90 Excluding GST

The Full Depth Grooved Frame Kitset  is a wooden frame that has a groove suitable for using with plastic foundation.

As bees are known to prefer wooden frames this provides a compromise.  More economical than using beeswax foundation but more natural than a complete plastic frame with foundation.  You do not have to bother with wires which makes the job easier. The plastic foundation will still need to be coated with wax to encourage the bees to draw out the comb.

These quality frames are made in New Zealand to New Zealand standards.

Minimum order quantity is 10.
