Our beginner kit comes with everything you need to get started with your first colony of bees, except the bees of course.
The kit comes with the second brood chamber included so as your bees quickly expand in the first hive body, you can add the second for them to move up into. This is especially important in 8 frame hives where there are two less frames for the bees to expand onto.
In addition to the two hive bodies the kit contains 16 wooden frames with crimp wire wax foundations, a screened IPM bottom board with observation tray included, an inner cover and outer telescoping cover, and an entrance feeder.
Tools and clothing included are a stainless steel smoker, 10" standard hive tool, bee brush, ventilated hat and veil as well as our high quality reinforced cowhide gloves (please specify size in notes).
Kit comes unassembled and includes nails (wood glue is recommended on all joints).
Please note: The kit ships in multiple boxes. Shipping cost be will adjusted and you will be contacted for actual shipping cost before sending out.
