I know some of you have experience using TBH's that are both angled and straight sided. Those of you that have used both what are your preferences? Do the angled sides really help prevent attachments more than the straight sides? I know on my two hives, they attached a little bit when first building their combs, but after I cut them they didn't reattach them at all. Will this happen similarily with a straight sided hive? I am trying to plan an observation hive and a straight sided hive would be easier and more attractive I think as well as being a little easier to build. I can see where a angled side would make pulling combs out easier, but I suppose it can still be done easily enough with straight sides. If so, how deep would be too deep for a straight sided hive?
I plan on building a straight sided hive, but would have to wait a while before really seeing its benefits and drawbacks over a Kenyan hive. Any advice or experiences you'd be willing to pass along? Thanks in advance!
