adding a lot of hives and colonies this year and im trying to get insight with the gear i should invest in. i did buy 5 hive setups last year with only one colony yet alive. so, i ended up with a lot of deeps and mediums which are all equipped with plastic frames. so i have been working the hive ive had this past year and a half with those. meaning i have zero experience with wood. looking into what to buy for the expansion, i have learned a few things between the 2. wood is known to harbor shb easier but is obviously cheaper to replace. plastic is less likely for shb but is less possible to manipulate the comb (cutting queen cells,drawing,and no comb honey). could any of u share ur insight and especially valuable experience with the 2 ? greatly appreciated guys.
