Goodland Bee Supply® has created the GL1STACK beginning beekeepers kits to make beekeeping a snap to get started. The GoodLand GL1STACK beehive kit has all the essentials (except the bees) to get you started on your beekeeping adventures. The beehive is made from long-lasting kiln dried pine and has all the necessities included from top to bottom for a successful beginning hive. Included in the GoodLand GL1STACK Full Telescoping Cover Telescoping hive cover "telescopes" over the sides of the top supper to protect the hive.
All Goodland Bee Supply wood products ship unassembled and professionally packaged to eliminate the possibility of damage during shipment. You may or may not want to re-inforce your hive with brad nails or screws (not included) at the joints.
Inner Cover The inner cover creates a dead air space to help insulate the hive from the heat and cold. The inner cover also allows easy removal of the lid by preventing the bees from internally affixing the lid to the hive with propolis or bee glue. Hive Bodies The lower larger boxes or "Brood Chambers" are the bee's living quarters. The queen lays eggs in these chambers and brood is raised. Honey is also stored for the bee's food reserves. This Kit includes one hive body. Large Frames and Foundations Large frames are used to support the large honeycomb foundations. The honeycomb foundations provide the building blocks and surface in which the bees will build out their honeycomb which will be used by the queen lays eggs in these chambers and raise brood. Made from kiln dried pine this kit includes 10 large frames and 10 Pierco pre-waxed large black plastic foundations. Bottom Board The bottom board or "base" forms the floor of the hive. This kit contains one bottom board complete with entrance reducer to protect the hive from mice and help regulate temperature during winter.
