    Hi
    I have been told that the mating boxes that Willbanks Apiaries uses are the best design. Does anyone have the plans for that box? I know I can buy one from Brushy Mountain and copy it but if someone here has the plans it would help.
    Thanks

    I used basicially the same box in CA except I used four frames in a single box mounted on posts like little bird houses. I don't know how to put diagrahms on the computer or I'd send you some. To get the frames drawn out I modified a regular medium depth super with slatted center divider and cut the top bars to make 20 short bars. Use standard end bars and make bottom bars to fit. I placed this on a strong colony and poured the the sugar syrup to them via a top feeder. Gary
