Details: Hoover Hives are known for their beautiful and skillfully crafted beehives. Every exterior hive part that may encounter rain or snow has been built with Fir wood and has been coated in 100% natural beeswax to help weather the elements. We’ve thoughtfully chosen to use Fir wood over the traditional Pine because Fir has a tighter knit grain-flow within the wood than Pine does. This makes our exterior parts far more durable and less likely to shrink, expand, warp, or twist from the rain than Pine would. Once we’ve cut the wood, we dip each part into a pool of natural beeswax. We allow the beeswax to be soaked into the hive parts. This not only protects the wood, but is also what gives our hives their natural golden honey lustrous allure. The delicate details of our durable dovetails were designed to hold together for years to come and create a joint that will stay perfectly square. After months of testing, we decided to have our frames come from the forests of New Zealand Pine. We’ve chosen this wood because it handles the meticulous cuts that are necessary for the grooves in our frames better than Fir handled it. This hive kit comes with two different types of CellTech foundations that have both been dipped in 100% beeswax to encourage your bees to quickly accept their new home and make an even layer of comb. The first type of foundation is a black food grade foundation made for the deep brood frames. The second type is a natural honey colored foundation made for the medium super frames. This kit also includes a Telescoping Top Cover that has been capped with galvanized steel to resist rust. The solid bottom board will reroute the wind chill and help keep your bees well insulated during cooler months. The Inner Cover has been and has an multipurpose oval opening cut out of the middle. Hoover Hives 10 frame hive parts use dimensions that are consistent with the industry standard and are interchangeable with all other Langstroth 10 frame beehives.
