Good to hear mike, I have four hives full of 100's and 120's ready to go for spring. Some natural some black for the broodnest and all natural for the supers.
All undrawn. Three hives will be packages and 1 all medium frame hive will be started from a small cell nuc.
4 small cell hives and 6 large cell hives (existing). The yards will be 20 miles apart.
I have 2 peirco black deep plastic frames in the hives. The bees draw out flat uniform comb compared to wax foundation. Only drawback is the bees like to burr comb the top bars. Makes it difficult to pull the frame directly above the burr comb.
