If we could see a video of you putting a box together like the one I posted above, it wouldn't be all :) and ;)!
My educated guess is that this all has more to do with the wood moisture...
Now you see the frustration in woodenware! I just grabbed a short and long box side from the pile I just ordered from Mann Lake. These are both commercial grade. Used my little PowerShot Canon.
OK, what I meant to say was, the standard size for a deep today is 9-5/8". I just measured hive bodies from 7 different manufacturers and 9-5/8" is by far the vast majority of them. Only one...
9-5/8" is the proper depth of a deep box.
What kind of detail are you looking for? Photos?
OK, this is no longer about beekeeping.
Easy to call members trolls when you have a hard time answering their questions. You might try some garlic and facing the hive entrance in some mystical direction as well. Might help!
Was a permit taken out for the block wall and grade change? Changing the natural flow of ground water is strictly regulated here.
A reminder, this thread is not for general discussion or to ask questions.
Please share with us this information.
How easy can it be to have to remove 3 grooves and a slot full of wax?
If it's recommended to cross wire the frames for supporting the foundation (which I would recommend as well for wax foundation), having the slot in the end bars makes no sense. In fact it makes it...
And to the OP, feed, feed, feed!
Feeding better not be optional when honey supers are on a hive! If the inspector actually filled the feeder with sugar water while the supers were on, he/she should be fired.
Gong! False, urban legend.
Alright you two, it all depends! I don't treat so I'm not about to get rid of 4 year old comb. I only rotate comb out if it is damaged or drawn poorly.
Then you do have some legal recourse.
And this is spelled out on a signed paper agreement?
OMGoodness Ben, you've been busy! Congratulations! Nothing like a newborn! Get a dulled hive tool in her hands as soon as possible.
It's your call, but I have no tolerance for members being uncivil to other members in private communication. One member just lost PM's due to incivility in a PM.
Where have you looked so far? Resources are available.
A simple solution, which I always did, is to put follower boards in, restricting the bees to the combs directly below the super(s), converting it into a vertical hive for winter.
