The first two boxes are for housing the brood and the next two boxes are for the bees to store honey. The bees will have space to grow and room to store the honey they bring in that will eventually be extracted from the hive. The Apiary Kit includes: 1 deep hive box with plastic frames; 3 medium hive boxes with plastic frames; a top cover; and a bottom board. Also included in the Apiary Kit is a deep frame feeder, metal queen excluder and entrance reducer. Dipped in wax, this hive does not require painting and is the perfect yard accent for those desiring a more natural looking beehive. Hive Stand sold separately.
