Description 

  Our 5 Frame Deep Hive Kit is handmade out of clear pine lumber. We individually select the clearest lumber we can to build the boxes. The Deep super has been predrilled and Hardware included. The 5 frame deep box is a great addition to any bee yard with uses such as: swarm traps, queen rearing, splitting hives, or starting packages.

Uses:

Queen Rearing

We reccomend everyone in our Black Fork Bee Club have a 5 frame deep hive kit setup, this works great as a method of raising queens, either to sell or to have on hand in preperation for the untimelly accident of rolling or smashing your queen while working you hive.

New Hive/Split

The 5 frame deep hive kit is a great way to start off a new hive or splitting and existing hive. We have found through our practice that the hive likes to stay tighter, by starting off a new hive or a split in a 5 frame box the hive seems to get establihed quicker.

Swarm Catcher

With this small lightweight form factor of the 5 frame box you are able to hang this from a tree limb or set it up on something off the ground with a little bit of attractant in it and it works great as a swarm trap. We have found that a good use for those unused deer stands work great for a swarm catcher platform
