Re: Why is everyone moving to mediums?
I am goign with deep brood boxes. I know why I chose them for the brood box and that has to do with the interruption of the brood chamber issue. I also chose med supers for the honey. I only have one reason that I made that choice and that is the upper body strength of those that will be helping me with the bees.
Deep bodies for brood chamber also means fewer frames to remove when inspecting the brood chamber. fewer frames means less time and less disturbance where it really counts.
I am also aware of all the complaints about having different size frames to deal with. I only have one hive so far so can switch to any set up I like with time. This is still experimental stage for me so having both will let me know first hand what I think of the different sizes. If I do go with all one size I suspect it will be all med.
