Cosmetic seconds. Apiguard Eke for the National or Commercial hive.
What are cosmetic seconds? Let us explain. Our craftsmen take huge pride in the quality of all our products and everything has to meet their exacting standards. Sometimes a product they’ve made will be functionally perfect but have a small cosmetic fault and they have been putting these to one side.
The ‘imperfections’ in these can be quite tiny and it seems such a waste for them not to be used. The most common flaw is a slight blue tinge which is a natural colouration sometimes appearing during the drying process whilst some others may have a small knot or blemishes. These slight cosmetic flaws which will not be noticed by the bees and will in no way affect their function.
