Re: Anyone with experience using 3 hive bodies for brood nests?
I'm running all three mediums but had often run three deeps in the past. Sometimes two deeps and one medium. Later, I went to one deep and one medium. After all that, I figured out that in the height of the season they needed a lot of brood space. By mid summer and fall, they had "space" but not filled with brood. Today, I find that running the mediums gives me a fair amount of expansion space and a fair amount of flexibility. It is kind of a pain to inspect and mentally keep track of but it's nice to have all the same size boxes. All that said, if you need space......give it to them!
