9 or 10 frames?

  1. Bee Forum
    I keep bees year-round in Minnesota. I use standard 10 frame deeps for brood chambers. Once comb is drawn - do most maintain 10 frames in brood chamber or do they move down to 9? Any known advantages or disadvantages to either way? Any affect on winter survivability or disease? Thanks!
