    Re: Trapping Experts, Will this Work?

    If you build your own swarm traps and run medium frames, why not build boxes to hold 4 medium frames and have them stacked 2 high?

    Re: Ultimate bee feeder

    It is expensive for a feeder only holding one gallon, and you need to put a medium super on to hold the hive cover.

    Re: Extractor and other equipment....

    Yes, as long as that is all you use it for.

    Re: Extractor and other equipment....
