Wire sizes ?
« on: March 28, 2008, 07:43:21 AM »
I think I know the answer. When you are referring to a size like size  8 screen. Are you referring to 8 mesh or wires to the inch? I just haven't ever bought it this way. April 2 two new package come home with me. So trying to get some finishing touch done to there home.
Thanks

don't overlook that the packages those bees come in is a resource for that wire.  you can pry off the bars holding that wire on one side to release the bees into your boxes instead of banging them out the hole.
