Hello All,
I am putting together our first hives, and I plan on using new brood boxes and supers (from Shastina) with some used frames aquired from a friend. Are there any concerns we should be aware of? Thanks!!

Make sure the boxes are square when you are done and paint them with good paint. At one time some of the old timmers around here had foul brood in there equipment. There is still some of this stuff around so if the used frames are not fairly new I would burn them and start with new ones. When I started in the bees I made up my mind to go with all new equipment. It is more expensive but well worth the cost.
