I am going to order some BeeMax hive equipment and start a hive this spring. I like the idea of trying new things, and this to me is new. How much should I get? Does one simply construct the brood nest of the bee max and use wood supers?
I believe they changed the design so they aren't oversized so wooden supers fit them better. I have the older models that I use with medium woodenware, they look a little funny and you have to line them up to fit but they work just fine.
I really like the beemax hives, all of mine have yielded strong colonies.
