About
Products

Plastic Beehive Frames

All Acorn Plastic Beehive Frames are available with standard, heavy or extra heavy wax, using the finest bees wax available. Fits 9-5/8″ and 6-5/8″ supers.

Acorn One Piece Plastic Beehive Frames have a newly redesigned and much stronger ear configuration. Highest quality manufacturing guarantees sturdier, flatter and stiffer frames.

Acorn Beekeeping took pains to design a precision cell that would increase bee acceptance. All of our manufacturing is done in our California plant to ensure the highest level of quality control.

TESTIMONIALS

Beats ALL other pre-waxed one piece plastic frames -Bees Favorite

I do lots of product testing when it comes to honey bees.
I have used plastic frames in my apiary since 2007.
This year, we tested three pre-waxed one piece deep frames and placed them side by side to see which products the bees accepted and had drawn comb on first.
The bees worked and produced comb on Acorn “heavy waxed” frames FIRST.

Pierco Pre-Waxed frames were less attended and given the option, were a solid second place to Acorn.
Mann-Lake Pre-Waxed one-piece frames came in third and the bees often constructed their comb from the top bar, bur ran it down parallel to the pre-waxed foundation which created unusable comb as they looked like stalactites made of wax.

The final result, bees will eventually work all three one-piece foundation/frames when pre-waxed. But given the choice, they draw out Acorn heavy waxed frames first. The plastic used in the Mann Lake frames is also more “brittle” – Pierco Frames tended to be “flexed” through the center field. Acorn Frames remain straight and flat.

I will be buying Acorn frames exclusively until something better comes along. I highly recommend them!

My favorite frames

Bees draw them well. I think a heavily waxed plastic frame gives you the benefits of wax foundation without the downsides. Other manufacturers are going to have to start applying this much wax or watch Acorn take their business.

Make sure you install the frames shortly after you get them. Bees seem to like their wax fresh.

Best waxing process you can get

Best frames period. The wax provided on these frames is superior to anything else on the market. Put new wood frames in another hive a week before purchasing these. The bees with the ACORN frames have passed the ones on the wood frames in less than two weeks. Will buy more! THANKS
