It appears that I can purchase 4 hive increase kits with two deeps and two supers for about $100 and some dollars more than building my own hives and buying the foundation. The biggest expense is the foundation/frames and that surprises me. What would everyone else on this forum do in my situation? Also I have 4 10 frame hives, but ordering from better bee 8 frame hives would be around 20$ cheaper per hive. have not compared man lake ltd yet. I just need some advice because I am ordering soon.
