Wax-Coated Solid Bottom Board

sold in last days

Hoover Hives solid bottom board is an excellent tool for rerouting a cold wind chill away from the hive throughout the cooler months. It can be the difference between your hive surviving the winter or not.

They use high-quality wood that is dipped in 100% beeswax to help endure the elements for years to come.

As a bonus, they’ve also included a free entrance reducer that can defend your bees from intruders while they are growing their colony.

Why Choose Hoover Hives?

Hoover Hives are known for their beautiful and skillfully crafted wax-coated beehives.

Every exterior hive part that may encounter rain or snow has been built with Fir wood. They’ve thoughtfully chosen to use Fir wood over the traditional Pine because Fir has a tighter knit grain flow within the wood than Pine does. This makes their exterior parts far more durable and less likely to shrink, expand, warp, or twist from the rain.

Once they’ve cut the wood, they dip each part into a pool of natural beeswax. They allow the beeswax to be soaked into the hive parts. This not only protects the wood but is also what gives their hives their natural golden honey lustrous allure.

Hoover Hives hive parts use dimensions that are consistent with the industry standard and are interchangeable with all other Langstroth beehives of the same size. Please keep in mind that 10 frame parts are not compatible with 8 frame parts and vice versa.

Our beehives leave the warehouse in mint condition. In transit wooden beehives can become damaged.

We ship your beehives out during business hours -- we typically ship within 24 to 48 hours of when the order was placed. In some cases we do ship your product out on the same day you order it, but if not, you can expect it to be shipped on the following day.

Please note that if you are ordering an assembled product, this may take a little more time.

We use both FedEx and UPS to ship our products, whichever is faster. We ship from central Ohio and on average products take 1 to 5 business days to reach your house.

We try our very best to get your beehives to you as fast as possible.

Depending on your order, at times our beehives can be too large to ship in just one package. For your convenience, we will split large orders into multiple boxes that are easier to carry.

Although all of your packages will have left our facility at the same time, please do not be surprised if they do not arrive at the same time. Shipping companies can sometimes be unpredictable, but rest assured your packages will be there soon. Please check your confirmation email for your tracking number(s).

Please order and assemble your hive well in advanced to the arrival of your bees so you know there will be no issues.

To qualify for free shipping, you must purchase $50 or more in products and live within the continental United States. If your order doesn't quite hit the $50 mark, we have a number of low cost accessories that can be added to your order.

If you wish to have beehives shipped to you out of the United States, then please contact us via email and we'll get you a rate quote.
