DIY Eight Frame Medium Queen Castle?
For a winter project, I thought I might want to make my own queen castle for next year. Brushy Mountain first sold me on eight frame mediums, yet I consistently find that they have some items that are only ten frames or only deeps. Like their queen castles. They do have mediums, but unfortunately, they're ten frames. Now how am I supposed to winter that on top of my eight frame hives?
So how can I make my own? What do you use for dividers, how do you separate the entrance, and what do you make the inner covers out of?
Assume I want to keep two four frame colonies in each castle.
4.5 hives of Italians. 2 seasons of experience. And you-- yes, you! You're my mentor!
