    Default 8 Frame All Mediums

    Introducing myself and thanking all for providing this 2nd year beekeeper valued lessons in beekeeping as I've been lurking along. I'll be especially interested in management techniques used in 8 frame all medium beekeeping. Lost one of my two hives this winter and will be trying to catch a couple of local swarms to increase to 3 hives. Also have a nuc ready to go to try some brave queen experiments.

    Bees will be bees. Whatever box they are in. One of the advantages of a smaller box (eight frame mediums) is you can manage them with a bit more granularity. Since the boxes are half that of a ten frame deep, you can add space a bit more incrementally.

    Welcome to the forum, Loribee. Were you able to determine what happened to the hive that you lost?
