Re: Cross or parallel wire deep lang frames?
If you're just using it for brood comb there's no real advantage. When I used deeps, I pushed those little frame pins in to keep the foundation from getting too wavy before the bees built comb. Once the comb is built it's pretty sturdy. If you plan on using it for honey (which I know a small handful of people do) cross wiring it would help but the weight of a deep frame of honey is hard to hold together in an extractor. Bottom line for me, if it's for brood don't bother with cross wiring.
