I'm new at this and have assembled my hive bodies, and I got to my frames today. I put ten frames in my super, and there's what appears to me to be an inordinate amount of space for the ten frames in the super. I can almost, but not quite, fit eleven frames in the super. Internal dimensions of the hive body are 18-1/2" x 14-3/4". The top rails or bars of the frames 1-1/16" deep. A photo is below to better illustrate my problem, if it is one. Is this normal? And if so, how do you properly space these the frames in the super? Nowhere in the book I have is this mentioned, and I'm concerned that the bees I pick up in two weeks won't have a proper home.
Many thanks for any response.
Looks like I can't post a photo, but the space left in the box when I have all the frames pushed to one side is 1-5/32" from the edge of the box to the top bar and 1-1/32" from the edge of the box to the stile/side piece of the frame.
