OK. I have searched for answers and come up empty. I try not to ask questions without looking first just to keep people from repeating themselves.I am using 8 frame deeps for brood boxes. I centered up the frames as seems to be the preferred method. My problem is that the bees build the comb so thick on the outside of the end frames that it makes frame removal difficult. I have considered using the method I once saw in a European video where the frames were pushed against each other and solidly against one wall of the hive. If this is the wrong answer could you guys help me with an answer about how to deal with the restricted frame removal. I just do not want to kill the queen during hive inspections.
I have one 8 frame hive, built to the standard dim for that set up., found that it gives too much space, one pass with a block plane on each frame allowed nine to be placed problem solved, at least for me..dl
