The hybrid roofs have a standard slab of 2 inch hard foam inside.Are the roofs insulated or vented? They look to be 2-3 inches deep, curious what's inside that space.
Should work.I'm wondering if just some recycled bubblewrap covered in thin plywood between the frame rest/box attachment cleats would provide sufficient insulation.
I am not sure I follow.Interesting... the 5 holes(multiple entrances and top cover vent have not caused excessive ventilation... aka heat loss?
Green - polyester blanket or similar insulator that dries out well.That makes alot of sense. What is the green in your diagram? I see the insulated follower boards and top insulation. Is the green more insulation?
Indeed, that stub sticking up is really just about the same size as a top bar cross-cut.It appears by using #9 wire to hang the frames that a super fits on top just fine without interference. I'm liking how this all fits together neatly. Thanks for the info!!
so fasten the frames with a small screw and rotate the trap.....I'm thinking about the bigger picture, the whole system if you will. My swarm traps are set up for traditional lang med frames. When a swarm starts drawing comb they obviously start drawing comb hanging down from these. Do you think these partial combs would withstand the 90 degree rotation into a long hive? Obviously they are not all this far drawn out. View attachment 62191
Yep.so fasten the frames with a small screw and rotate the trap.....
Sure they will.should not IMO rotate the frames 90Degrees after built unless it is feed frames they will eat the honey if needed, not sure they would brood in them.
