10 Frame MDO Migratory Lid - Wax Dipped

$ 16.99

SKU: 1088

Quality flat lid with attached pine cleats provides a simple, yet effective means for sealing off the hive and protecting it from the elements:

  • Made from Medium Density Laminate (MDO) Plywood with attached pine cleats on two ends.
  • Sides are cut to the width of the box and not cleated, making for easy access with a hive tool.
  • Dipped in Paraffin and Tree Rosin to provide extra protection against weather conditions
  • Dims: 21-5/8" (L) x 16-1/4 (W) x 3/4" (H)
READ MORE ABOUT PARAFFIN/ROSIN: After assembly, 100% of the box is submerged into the pre-heated solution which extracts moisture from the wood cells and the solution penetrates those cells acting as a sealant.  
WHY IS THERE MORE WAX ON DIFFERENT PARTS, AND LESS WAX ON OTHER PARTS?  The cambium and cells of the wood are not all the same size; some cells are larger than others thereby absorbing more (or less) wax, but rest assured, the entire box is weatherproofed.
