I have been wanting to start using 8 frames in my 10 frame medium honey supers but have been put off by trying to space them properly. I didn't want to use the frame rest spacers because they provide more places for SHB to hide.
I have been making my own frames lately, so I decided to make the end bars 1 3/4. This cuts my labor by 20% and saves 2 pieces of foundation per super. I am using Acorn waxed foundation so I don't have to drill the holes in the end bars for wires or wire the frames either.
I have a question about how to begin, though. Should I place these new frames between capped honey frames to ensure they are drawn correctly?
Thanks for any suggestions.
