Re: What size hive boxes are those with bad backs using?
I have to deep 10 frame bodies and 3 10 frame medium supers. I chose that to start with due to all I have read on this issue on this site. It is a start and I expect to discover what I like best from there. I see a good chance I may end up with 8 frame boxes before it is over but I don't see me giving up the deep box for brood chambers easily. My first hive so far is two deeps. one for brood one fore the bees stores. I will add mediums above that. That I expect will be my honey.
