I was looking through a supply cataloge that includes in it 8-frame hives and parts. One benefit that was offered is that the supers would be lighter than the 10-frame counterparts. It would seem to me that the supers would get capped sooner... So, I'm interested....
However, I'm also concerned about over-wintering capabilities and effects on broodnest shape.
Has anyone else used these? What do you think the pros and cons would be?
