Our Apologies - due to Winter Stock-take - our shop will be closed until 1:00 am


Beekeepers use wax foundation sheets inside their frames, this helps the bees build the comb within the frames.

By having foundation, it prevents what beekeepers call, crazy comb being built, it's the comb that bees build in a crazy fashion, unorganised and in-between frames and joining frames together – crazy !

Wax FoundationA hive with crazy comb is very difficult to inspect, you will also lose valuable resources that the bees have stored in this comb, such as brood and honey.

You will also need to purchase Bee Frames and Wire in order to secure the Wax Foundation within the frames.

Candle makers also purchase Wax Foundation to roll up and make candles from.

The wax foundation comes is different thickness, dependent on your purpose. This foundation is medium brood sized (2 mm). Which is good for most applications.

You will need one Wax Foundation sheet per frame. For people with 1/2 Depth frames you can cut a full sheet in half.

These sheets are designed for non-grooved bottom bars and have the following height:-
Full – 205 mm (422 wide)
3/4 – 145 mm (422 wide)

Handy Hint: Grooved bottom-bars are a great place for wax-moth to burrow-in and lay eggs – so we use non-grooved bottom bar frames which prevent wax-moth from burrowing-in.

Here is a video on how to install the wax sheets:-

    Super service. A well packed product that arrived in top condition. Messaged for courier to prevent any heat distortion.

  2. Lynne (verified owner)

    Excellent product made of clear light wax, even and uniform just as one would expect. I only wish it also came in small cell for varroa control in the brood chambers and large cell for the honey frames, access to variety would be nice 🙂

    Product was exemplary, very well packaged and as stated above labeled with a “keep cool- contains wax product” .
    Not exactly overnight delivery after ordering, but I guess it is a busy time of the year for beekepers and stock supplies are pretty low in NZ at the moment, but delivery time might need to be factored in to ordering before absolutely needed.

      Hi Jeff, Thanks so much for your feedback – we appreciate it very much. Yes our timing was off due to the fact we were away at our sons wedding but we couldn’t say until we got back due to our property being vacant while we were away. I hope that we can be of service to you in the future. So our apologies to you for the delay – by the way as we are in a rural location our normal delivery days are Tuesday’s and Thursday’s then it boils down to when the money arrives in to our account, Thanks again for your feedback and patience – we will do better next time for sure. Regards Margaret

    I usually source foundation wax from local Whangarei stores but two that I visited hadn’t stocked the wax for months. One store even suggested that my best chance of procuring foundation wax was online. Kiwimana website looked very professional and had some in stock. Yeah! Fortunately they shipped immediately and it arrived safely.
    Great service!

    Honestly, It is not the just the product. It is the service. Beeing a fan of kiwimana podcast. purchasing off them is like dealing with your next door neighbour.

    Hi Brian, thanks for your feedback. Just clarifying that the frames have non-grooved bottom-bars and the bees will draw the wax down to the bottom-bar, We did try grooved bottom bars but we found that they were attractive to wax-moth to lay in, so we only stock non-grooved which sorted out the wax-moth issue and confident that like our Bees, your girls will drawn the comb down. Thanks again for your comments and hope this addresses your concern. Regards, Margaret and Gary …thanks for beeing part of the kiwimana buzz….
