This 8 Frame assembled kit comes complete with the essentials you need (except the bees) to get started right away. If you are catching swarms or making splits, this is a perfect way to start them off. Later, you can either reunite colonies or top with additional stories. Comes with all the components needed to start a colony quickly.
The kit has an upgraded copper garden outer cover worth over $80 and the additional accoutrements for the beginning beekeeper. BetterBee has generously upgraded the frames, cover, and added the important Varroa monitoring options and tools to get the lucky winner started.
BetterBee is very excited to be a small part of this event to celebrate the 6 amazing women being honored. They are especially proud of Marla's accomplishments and the awareness she brings to the beekeeping world and beyond.
In addition to the kit, this donation also includes a basket of Minnesota products, including:
- Honey from MN Honey Co, Beez Kneez, Worker B
- Book: James L. (Poetry)
- A Brick Paver (to be personalized by the buyer, installed at the New Bee Lab at the UofM)
