# of frames in a queen castle
« on: September 28, 2011, 10:36:35 AM »
For those of you with queen castles how many frames do you have in each division?

I want to make a long hive with 6 to 8 divisions. 

Thanks

2 frames works fine.  One just isn't enough.  3 will work, but kind of defeats the idea of a minimal place to have a queen.
