I also have 2 TechnosetBee Hives. ( first year bee slave )
One issue I have had is the plastic frames that come with the hives are not straight along the top.
they bend down a little - and my guess is the bee space can be wrong between the frames in the supers
top and bottom - and the bees doggedly built comb between the top of one of the bottom
frames and the bottom of one of the top frames. I replaced the bottom frame at that spot with a standard
wooden frame and they stopped doing that. ( I think they plan on using different frames in the future )
Also the plastic frames are not quite long enough and can seem that at a small angle may fall down - this
will make me *really nervous if I have to move my hive.
Once again - the standard wood frame seems to fit perfectly lengthwise.
So far they seem to be working as advertised - my bees are doing well - they also seemed
slightly cheaper than the otehr hives I priced
They have top ventilation holes on the covers ( which one of my hives seems to like and the other has propolised
closed - so the bees have their choice
. For both my hives I had to get a small file and clear away plastic
from the manufacturing process to clear the top vents.
Easy to clean - being plastic - I never wanted to be painting and all that - so this suites my
I haven't tried any of the other Plastic hives - but Aside from my nitpicking above - I'm
super happy etc
