    Question

    I live in Colorado Springs and my son wants to keep bees. We looked at the double wall beehive and want to know if there are any advantages to it over the normal 10 frame hive.

    The only one I know of is it looks great in the garden. It falls way short in all other aspects. You don't want to use a WBC hive if you're just starting out. It will require twice as much to work the hive as it is double walled. I plan to make one for my garden but it will be altered in dimension to accept standard Dadant type frames.

    Regards,
    Barry
