    I wish I had seen this the other day. I stopped by their shop in Woodland, CA and picked up a whole bunch of stuff. I would've bought several hive bodies too. Oh well, now I have a reason to go back again. (grin)

    See I told ya! I was surprised when nobody took notice of my post! I am interested in these deeps too, but I guess the shipping will be quite a bit(they being assembled).

    Alas my question remains unanswered.. Why are they cheap?

    Did I remember reading a post that bees did not care for treated material, because the smell. If not, has anyone used treated material and if so, how good was the results?

    I just spoke to Mann Lake (Monday - 2/26) and they said that offer was from last December. They're not offering them now. Oh well. The preservative is a food grade product, that according the Mann Lake doesn't bother the bees. Sounded like they will sell them again, but I don't know what the price will be. This sounds like it was an off-season sale.
