Wax Coated Plastic Foundation is the most durable foundation available. It is also the easiest to work with. Simply assemble the frame and snap in the foundation. No wiring, hooks, or pins needed. Wax Coated Plastic Foundation will not bend, break, or sag and burr comb or wax moth damage can be easily scraped off without damaging the foundation underneath. Wax Coated Plastic Foundation is made of injection molded plastic with preformed cells and a 100% pure beeswax coating for better acceptance by bees. Use with grooved wooden frames.
8 3/8 inch foundation is used with 9 1/8 inch frames and 9 5/8 inch deep supers
Tip - Sometimes bees need to be encouraged to accept and draw plastic foundation. Once the comb is drawn the bees will use it readily year after year. Begin with a full super of ten empty frames. Spray sugar syrup on each side of the frame and allow it to partially dry so that it is thick and does not run off the frame. Place the super on the hive and the bees will do the rest.
