    That´s what I meant, thanks, dan, to make it clear.
    If you let the bees decide they build 30-32 bee space between the combs in worker brood area without frames, or even more narrow. David Heaf has some nice picts on his side. So why arguing?

    >Thank you. Do you make your own narrow frames from scratch or trim available frames down?

    Yes. I also pay people to make them for me when I can find them. I hope to buy enough to offer them for sale one of these days soon. The custom made ones are nice since the top bar is thinner as well.
