    Re: feeder boxes

    I would no assume that the floats would be Harmful. Galvanized metals react harmfully at high temperature. This being said I would not see it being any more of a problem than wood glue or metal...

    The advantage of using 5 frame is because of space. I can take 3 frames, split a hive, and stick them in a nuc. Once they build to fill the nuc I can transfer to a 10 frame. This gives them enough...
