This base is manufactured by Parker Engineering Dunmore, pioneers in plastics manufacturing in Australia. The base includes plastic 'feet' for the bottom of the cleats and plastic entrance closers. A very solid unit indeed.

  • Made from long-life UV-stabilised food grade structural plastic
  • Extremely durable--Parker states their plastic hives can last up to 30 years!
  • Easy to clean
  • Offers better insulation than timber
  • Can be used alongside timber in the same hive
  • Ready to go: no need to paint

Plastic bases do not have a provision for a beetle trap. To manage beetle with this base, place a beetle trap at the top of the hive.
