Our new beemax hive arrived today, and my sons and I are looking forward to putting it together this weekend. We got two deeps and three medium supers. We are considering putting a package in the deeps and using woodenware on top and another package into the mediums and putting wooden supers on them as well. We have not decided on the moving to medium thing, so this might be a good way to toe dip. We do not use excluders, so we always have a few mediums with brood in them anyway, and a few hives of medium brood chambers might give us a place to put mediums with brood. We are looking forward to seeing how the beemax is different from wood.
