Follower boards.
« on: January 17, 2012, 01:09:51 AM »
Does anyone routinely use follower boards in their langstroth equipment?  I just read the Killion  Honey in the Comb book and the author advocated it.  Anyone currently following that line of thought?

Still loving them.  Allows you to turn any super into a NUC.  I use them in my LONG HIVEs too.
