We have developed the Duplex-Wabentasche (Duplex Frame-box) so that beekeepers can easily reduce the number of breeding cells by caging the queen in only two frames (e.g., already in July).
In this way it is possible to treat the breeding cells of up to 9 hives in two hours with the Varroa controller. The Duplex Frame box also allows having hives without breeding cells for other further treatments.
A detailed explanation on the Duplex-Wabentasche and its use is included in the new edition (2015) of the Manual of Hyperthermia (Chapter 6.2). Our Duplex Frame-box accommodates two frames, it is completely made of aluminum, and can easily be cleaned in the steam wax melting machine.
The Duplex Frame-box is available in the following sizes: Zander, EHM/DNM, ÖBW, EHM-Jumbo, Dadant orig./Blatt/mod./US, and Zander-Jumbo.
You can order the Duplex Frame-box in packages of three, six, nine, twelve or more units (multiples of three). The sales price depends on the number of units, as follows:
|Price||Zander, EHM/DNM,ÖBW||Dadant orig./Blatt/mod./US, Zander- and EHM- Jumbo|
|from 3 pieces||€ 35,40/piece||€ 39,60 /piece|
|from 6 pieces||€ 33,00/piece||€ 37,20 /piece|
|from 12 pieces||€ 31,80/piece||€ 36,00 /piece|
All prices include 20% VAT and are valid from 01.03.2020 until 31.12.2020.
Separate shipping costs are not inculded in the above prices and will be calculated individually. Each Duplex Frame-box unit consists of five individual pieces, which are assembled by the user.
This assembly is simple, requires no additional tools, and takes approx. 2 minutes per unit - see video above.
