    Default Mann Lake PF-125 Vs. Pierco frames?

    Hi all,
    Question that's about bees and money (shipping cost mostly).

    Which is a better frame the mann lake PF-125 or the Pierco. To me better is what the bees like most and has the best lifetime performance.

    PF-125 is less expensive but only before shipping to me.

    I'm going to be purchasing about 800 frames and the pierco come out to about $225 less after delivery.

    I have used and like the PF-125 but never used the pierco.

    Micheal Bush is a fan of the 125's for the same reasons I like to use them (SC)

    Thanks for your opinions.

    The bees have accepted the PF100 series better for me than the Pierco. But they are cheaply made and the Pierco probably will last longer.

    Exactly. The cell size is more important to me. The cost is nice. The acceptance is nice.
