Precision crafted from kiln-dried Western Cedar, this premium 8 frame brood box is the best that money can buy.
Kiln dried cedar ensures consistent moisture levels which minimizes warping and cracking and creates a box that will last for years to come. Because cedar contains natural tannins that protect from rot and decay, these hives can last for decades if cared for properly.

Unlike other softwood boxes, cedar can be left unpainted to weather naturally over time acquiring a beautiful rich grey patina. Alternatively, they can be sealed with a coat of pure Tung or other food safe oil to preserve their natural reddish color.
Each super includes 2 short sides and 2 long sides and come unassembled (hardware sold separately). When assembled, each super measures 14" wide x 19 7/8" long x 9 5/8" tall and fit on an 8-frame hive. Use 9 1/8" frames and 8 1/2" foundation with this size of box.
Also known as a deep super or brood box, the 9 5/8" super is probably the most integral component of your hive as it is typically used to house your bees and hold the frames where the queen lays her egg. These are also the boxes where your bees will store honey and pollen for them to feed on throughout the season.
