    Default Queen bank frame

    I built my self a prototype bank frame recently. Holds all kinds of cages. Hope it works and they don't make a mess of it. I won't be going into any Carnie nucs for sure..some ol lazy Italians will do best.




    That is a bungee type cord stretched in front of the top row of cages. Corn dog sticks wedged into the groves of the frame for simple dividers

    Nice frame, cannot figure out why you are using the corn dog dividers, do you think they can kill each other through cages?

    Yes, allows the bees good access to the queens, should work quite well.

    I once seen a really well thought out and nicely built queen banking frame on a old post that Oldtimer had made, it had small wooden cages that sat inside the frame side by side. Maybe Oldtimer can put that pic up again.
