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.
