Re: different size deep horizontal hives
With that 1.5 piggyback Dadant frame you will find that a lot of your honey crop is in the brood chamber with no means to extract those giant frames. All of these experiments were already done 150 years ago and that is why we today use a shorter frame with supers on top so that we can remove those supers to extract them. A frame that deep is also hard to lift and manage. Do a Search for my threads "Gargantua" many years ago. The pictures are now locked in Photobucket that showed the result. I had to cut down the frames to a manageable size.
