10 Frame Beehive Base - Mesh Vented Bottom Board With Drawer Trap
These 10 frame beehive bases are made from New Zealand pine and 304 stainless steel.
The bases feature a mesh base for hive health, ventilation and small hive beatle management. The bases also have a removable draw tray to help trap small hive beatles. The bees chase the beatles around the hive and they fall through the mesh bottom. The beetles can be trapped by using chux cloth, oil or diatomaceous earth (check regulations in your state) in the removable tray drawer.
Riser – 506mm x 406mm (fits standard 10 frame Langstroth)
Overall – 535mm x 406mm x 115mm
Available raw timber or wax dipped and painted. Wax dipping is a process many commercial beekeepers use to preserve the timber for a longer working life. The bases are dipped into a wax mix of 50/50 microcrystalline/paraffin and then painted 4 times.

Haven’t used as yet! Looks good
An excellent product which I reviewed on their 8 frame product as well. Please refer for my comments there on :)
Good service and a good product.
This is exactly what I needed, I had purchased a kit hive (an import shall we say) as I'm just a beginner and wanted to save some money, but quickly found the short comings of doing so. Needless to say I've practically had to replace of modify most of my original purchase and this was the final piece of the puzzle. It is light and sturdy, the built in draw is great. Thank you for completing my new home for my nuke hive.
New screened bottom board seems to be helping keep pests under control.
