Langstroth Brood Frame, Assembled, with Yellow Beeswax Coated Plastic Foundation
Our beeswax coated plastic foundation will stand up to season after season, extraction after extraction. The deeper cells feature textured interiors and sharper cell edges that encourage quicker acceptance.
It is recommended that this product is used in every frame location, if given the choice bees will brace against pure wax foundation.
Tip, after two seasons use a wide scrapper our ( HD-615 ) to clean the plastic foundation back to the rib, then place the box and frames back on the hive above a crown board with just one hole in the crown board open. The bees will usually clean the residue from the plastic frames leaving the plastic foundation ready to use.
If you think the frames need to be cleaned more thoroughly this can be done with either a small steam cleaner or by soaking in soda and bleach.
The plastic foundation can also be melted out at low temperature provided it is left in the frame, use some caution when using heat on the plastic foundation..
Once cleaned re coat with wax using a small sponge roller .
- Requires no reinforcement
- Impervious to wax moth damage
- Food grade plastic
- Use year after year with proper care
