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.

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.
Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
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.
