8 Frame Beehive Base - Mesh Vented Bottom Board With Drawer Trap
These 8 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 355mm (fits standard 8 frame Langstroth)
Overall – 535mm x 355mm 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.

Just what I needed good price, well made, prompt delivery.
The product is excellent
Really quick shipping and turnaround.
That is great customer service.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I pulled the new trays out from under my hives to add the DE. There were 10-15 beetles in the empty trays after only a few minutes! Best $$$ I have spent on SHB eradication.
As much as I would like to keep my feedback to myself for selfish reasons, I can't - Peter and The Bee store have been nothing but amazing, personal responses and the quickest delivery by far.
Thanks Peter and hope you continue to bee this great.
