18 Assembled & Wired Frames, plus 18 Pure Australian Beeswax Foundation Sheets
Perfect for those who prefer to embed their own beeswax wax foundation sheets prior to insertion into the beehive, this pack is designed for easy shipping and storage.
Waggle & Forage's full depth beehive frames are CNC cut by Alliance Woodware - Prime Pine, who only use sustainably grown New Zealand Radiata Pine.
They are assembled by us, right here in Kyneton, using Titebond III Ultimate Glue and commercial grade, glue coated staples.
We have used Australian made brass eyelets with stainless steel wire to support our 100% pure beeswax foundation sheets.
Waggle & Forage are really fussy when it comes to 100% pure Australian beeswax and we only purchase from well respected commercial beekeepers right here in Central Victoria.
We’re really proud of our wax foundations. We use a European method to make our product, which avoids any molecular changes to the structure of the beeswax cells. When our foundations are given to the bees, the molecular structure of the wax is the same as the day they made it.
Manufactured right here in Kyneton.
Our standard full depth sizing is 20.6 cm x 40.9 cm, however we can supply various volumes and sheet sizes to suit your needs.
How to Store Beeswax Foundations
Don’t forget, beeswax has a relatively low melting point range between 62 and 64 °C but that doesn’t mean your foundation sheets should be stored in the fridge! On the contrary, we recommend storing your foundation sheets at room temperature, in a dry place away from direct sunlight. If it’s a warm day and your room is warm - perfect! Further, as our foundation sheets are 100% natural, if they have been sitting in a cool environment, we recommend slightly warming the sheets before use to ensure pliability. This could be achieved in a 23 to 30°C temperature range.
