A standard untreated Pine solid bottom board made of 2 pieces joined, then on top, 3 risers to create Bee space for entrance. The solid bottom board has two pieces of treated pine to act as feet underneath, to raise bottom board off the ground. Handy if you place the baseboard directly on the ground.
Fits a standard langstroth hive-box containing 10 Frames – not included.
The baseboard or bottom board is the foundation of your hive and needs to be able to withstand the weight (around 45 kilos each box approx) of several hive boxes full of honey.
