White waxed snap-in plastic foundation. Durable and coated in beeswax. Just snap into frame. Works well with Grooved frames.
Why Use Plastic Foundation?
• Pierco foundations store well until needed or can be ordered immediately when necessary. This saves you time, labor and capital outlay.
• Pierco equipment is not damaged by rodents, high speed uncappers or extractors, as well as wax moths (just scrape clean and return to supers).
• Pierco plastic mid-rib is stiff and flat, so the cell depth is very uniform. This allows the queen to lay more eggs and come through the winter with more bees in the spring.
• Deeper cells - stiffer and stronger foundation - no bowing.
Black Foundation vs White Foundation?
We’re often asked why we sell two colors of plastic foundation. Black Foundation is typically used in the brood box so that it is easier to see brood (baby bees). The white plastic foundation can be used in the honey supers to keep them separate from frames that have been treated with medication.
