10pk of Rite cell Foundation to fit the Mini Mating Nucs (IN-140) Colours may vary

May require trimming to fit certain frames - trims easily with our HD-583 . Needs to be waxed into position to fit the frames.

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.

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.
