    What about building down vs up, and queen excluders, etc... Those are things I want to avoid in Langtroth hives.

    I'm happy to be educated though!

    Thanks again!

    I'm going to call my local apiary inspector if I don't get a reply to my email.

    Re: All hives must have movable frames.

    That's a fair point. I've emailed my local apiary inspector and asked about Warre frames in our district, so we'll see what comes back :-)

    Re: All hives must have movable frames.

    That's great info!
