For those of us on 8 frame equipment:
Just received my order of slatted racks from Betterbee. For the first time they are available for eight frame equipment. They appear to fit fine with my Brushy Mountain 8 frame woodenware...can't wait to install them.
They say the queen is more likely to lay all the way down to the very bottom of the lower brood frames when using the racks. Also I am hoping the racks will help prevent swarming, by alleviating the spring and summer congestion; aid ventilation during those hot humid days and minimize drafts in winter.
The slats run paralell to your frames, so as not to impede with mite drop to the Screen Bottom Board.
Here is hoping! Cheers, D
