Bee-Equipment’s Premier foundation is manufactured from a blend of European sourced beeswax, we are proud to offer one of the highest grade beeswax foundations in the UK.
We use this foundation in all our 300 plus colonies based in Kent. Our bees thrive on it, the thickness allows bees to start to work it up into cells, the smell, texture and colour is as you would expect from such a high grade product.
Wired in the traditional British “W” pattern embedded while still warm, this ensures a secure a structure that avoids sagging.
About this item
Unfortunately that’s as far as it goes. This is the most brittle foundation I have ever used resulting in wasted sheets when fitting in frames. In 25 years of bee keeping I have never encountered this problem before. Room temperature was 20c so it wasn’t too cold.
The foundation was almost impossible to insert in the frame without it crumbling in pieces, Really fragile.
A it tricky to handle because of the size but worked very well, bees drew the come straight away. Good product.
This is the first time I have bought foundation from this company and I’ve got to say how disappointed I was with the quality.
It broke and cracked very easily and I ended up wasting three pieces.
I have used other companies foundation in the past and even in cold weather they performed much better than this foundation. Won’t be buying it again.
Completely satisfied with this foundation, fit perfectly in the frames without a problem.
