I have never noticed a difference between hive bodies that was significant enough to worry about, I have Dandant, Mamm lake, Glory bee, and all sorts of others there never seems to be that much difference. They all leave a space on the outside Of the box, Personally I do not like my frames bunched tightly together, I actually like the frames to have a space about the thickness of a matchbook cover, well for those who don't remember match books(LOL) a business card will work. I have made frame spacing tools that instantly maintain my preferred spacing. remember the space between each frame has a bit of a recess, and the outer wall does not. if the frames are placed to closely to the outer wall the bees will not draw them out.
