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

By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world
