Foundation Tools

We have a wide variety of beekeeping tools to help install and strengthen your beeswax foundation. Beekeepers will often use support pins or wire to add strength to the foundation. We have both plastic and metal support pins and support rods that can be quickly installed in the frame to prevent the foundation from sagging. Many beekeepers utilize a form of foundation support Dadant & Sons pioneered called cross-wiring. This is a technique used to support the beeswax foundation sheet. The frame wire can be embedded by hand or melted into the beeswax foundation by an electric embedder.
