    Re: Rubber Banding Comb into Frames?

    It depends on the flow and wax makers as to how long before they attach the comb, but usually not long at all. The bees will chew and remove the rubber bands.

    Re: Solid Bottom Board and Top Cover

    What happens when you flip the lid and put it on top, doesn't rain get stuck in the corners of the rim and have a chance to soak into the wood? Why not just use it with a 3" top entrance as well?
