Maybe I'm just lucky, but none of mine have broken, not even after being in the freezer. I also string my frames with monofilament.
Ray--1 year, 7 hives, TF
I have had that happen right out of the hives while the comb was full of honey and covered in bees. As for this one. A little melted wax on the seams and it will be right as rain. I have actually re attached comb on a top bar that way once.
Fishing line. How are others fastening it. Stapling lets some loose.

monofilament is fishing line, if I am not mistaken 10# is what people use. It is strung on the frames much the same as wire although I have seen it used in an x pattern as well. I have tried monofilament a few years ago but I still prefer wire.
