In the rush for complex solutions, traditional ideas are often overlooked...
Plain beehive bases work very well. Especially in dryer, colder climates not subject to large infestations of small hive beetle. Unassembled bases are a cheap option for those who are on a budget, or if you are running lots of hives. We recommend that you use a beetle trap.
This base kit consists of:
1" riser made of New Zealand radiata pine. Requires assembly (we also recommend that you treat the wood).
Durable weathertex base board.
White cypress cleats which are resistant to termites and rot.
