Re: Double Deeps or Deep and Medium
Neither configuration has a solid advantage over the other. Both have 16 frames to inspect for a queen. Double deeps are too much honey for winter i.e. a waste of salable honey. I agree with the statement that it is better to have all frames a single size.
This diffugulty is why I chose to convert to square Dadant equipment over the last 2 years. I have 14 frames to inspect for a queen and all the honey needed for winter can be stored in a single box.
