Here is the question.
Last summer I caught a swarm and I built my own 10 frame box which is 19 7/8 by 16 1/4. What I did was I trimmed each side of each frame and I put 11th frame in there. It turned out pretty well. I was very impressed. Each frame was nice and even, and it looks perfect. About 8-9 frames was pure brood. I know about it being a little heavy to lift but I want to switch all of my other deep boxes to 11 frames in the spring.
Have any of you tried this?
