nice pictures finman,
 I was wondering do the bees still ut propalas on the inside of the have? If they do does this couse a problem when you seperate the hive parts,does it brake off peices of the hive?

 How much do the hives cost over their? I have only seen one type in the states and they are about 15 us here.

I was reading in the Better Bee catalog, that they don't propolize the styrofoam hives for some reason. So, I don't know if that's accurate, but that is what is being advertised.

That is correct Amy, They don't propolize the styrofoam hive pieces. I have friends with styrofoam hives, and they say propolis is not a problem. Lighter than wood and have a better R-value (insulation) too! Cheesy
