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. We recommend that you use a beetle trap with this base.
This base kit consists of:
1" riser made of New Zealand radiata pine.
Durable weathertex base board.
White cypress cleats which are resistant to termites and rot.
Bulk discounts available. Please call us for the price.

Good quality, works wellBy: Matthew on 16 November 2021A generally good quality base, but having both this and the ventilated base, I'd probably prefer the ventilated base over this one, even with the additional cost. However, if you are looking to save a little money, this is a good compromise, with the beetle trap being a useful addition. It would help if the tray for the beetle trap was white instead of black so you could see if it is full or not.
