Helpful Hint - order your equipment and hives at least 3 weeks before you expect your bees to arrive. Picking up at our store in Fairmount, Il? Call us to place your order and be scheduled for a pick up date and time.
We make strong bottom boards, from 3/4" pine NOT plywood like others do. Screen Bottom Boards provide better ventilation and many use them to help control mites, hoping that mites will fall out of the hive through the screen. Bees cannot fly through the screen which is important to prevent robbing from other hives. Fully assembled and painted.
