    Maybe you should change your frame assembly technique. 1 1/2" staples don't pull out, even without glue. If you're using those little brads, they're guaranteed to pull out, usually as you're prying a full frame of brood out of the hive. We've had very few blowouts and 99% were because of bottom bars breaking due to the wood available these days.
