Tanzanian Topbar Hive
Hello All, I'm getting ready soon to make a couple of Tanzanian hives. I have a concern though about the depth of the hive from a plan I was looking at. Will the honeycomb support the weight of a full frame of honey during really hot weather (90 degrees plus)? Or might it break off? I live in Liverpool, NY and on occasion we have hot summer days. I use nucs to start my beehives so I'm talking regular size frames. Wondering if I should make main body of topbar hive the size of a medium frame to be safe? I have been a beekeeper for 3 years and still have much to learn. Thanks so much for response!
