  11. Re: Long Lang Users, How many Frames Should I Plan For?

    I've found when building horizontal hives you may need to compromise on x number of frames vs more money that winds up being scrap wood because you needed another couple of inches. I'm using 16...

  13. Re: Splits- leave queen home or move to new hive?
