 Product Description

Screened bottom board - Basic screened bottom board features WEATHER PROOFED WAX DIPPED pine construction with 3/4" beeways and bottom screen for ventilation and disease control.   Also includes groove for mite board (not included). Great mix of quality and value, all the basic features of more expensive bottom boards but at a much lower price.

DIMENSIONS: Fits standard 8 frame (14" wide by 19-7/8 long) and 10 frame (16-1/4 wide x 19-7/8 long) equipment.


  • READ MORE ABOUT PARAFFIN/ROSIN DIPPED BOXES: 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 OF THE BOX, 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.

  1. Well built and reasonably priced

    Posted by Andrew on 13th Mar 2018

    What I like about this screened bottom board is that the wood along the bottom is thick. This allows me to use them as a hive stand/screened bottom in one. Other manufacturers such as Kelley, Mann Lake screened bottoms are flimsy and I’ve cracked more than a few. The Shastina bottoms are rigid enough that I wouldn’t hesitate to heft a whole hive into a pickup with these on.
