SNOW PEAK APIARES
34769 E Lacomb Rd
Lebanon, OR  97355-9126
PHONE: (541) 451-3752
PROS: The Frame dimensions are standard, however the thickness of the bottom of their frames is substantially thicker and easier to put together.  It’s a much tougher frame all together.  These folks build them to last.
CONS:  You must order by phone.  Online ordering is unavailable at this time.  You need to buy foundation in addition to the frame.

PLASTIC FRAMES

PIERCO BEEKEEPING EQUIPMENT
3900 Hamner Ave
Mira Loma, CA 91752, USA
PHONE: 800-233-2662
Email: pierco@snapware.com
WebSite: www.pierco.net

PROS: Quick all in one when you need it fast.
CON:  Limited strength and life.  Part of healthy beekeeping does require you to replace your brood frames every few years.  Plastic frames can ease that rotation labor.

HIVE BODIES AND HONEY SUPERS

CONTRACT PROS MANUFACTURING
45 Lafayette St.
Hazel, SD 57242
PHONE: (605)628-2700
FAX: (605)628-2701
WebSite: www.hivebodies.com
PROS:  A little different design actually helps you in the long run.  You get a lot less broken dog ears at the top of your boxes due to Mikes special tooling.  You can see a picture of his boxes at: hivebodies.com.  Also his unique round edges on all his boxes make it easier and faster for assembly. We sell this product online here: BEE BOXES FOR SALE
CONS:  Currently the hand holds on his boxes are not quite deep enough.  I know Mike is currently changing that.  He may already have done so.  His price is higher, but you get what you pay for.
