I am starting a couple foundationless langs after having so much fun with a top bar hive over the last year. The narrow frames (1-1/4 inch) worked in the KTBH so they should work in the Lang as well.
My question is about the gap on one side of the box (about 1 inch). Won't the bees build this 9th frame out way too thick? if so, what do you do about it?
My understanding is that you should press all the frames against one side of the hive and leave a gap at the other end. Am I doing this right?
