I run all 8 frame medium equipment...However, I was given a couple of nice 10 frame mediums, along with a hive stand and bottom board.
I couldn't find the thread, but I know in past 8/10 frame equipment discussions someone referenced someone who used to run 10 frame (sized) boxes for their brood boxes with 8 frame (sized) honey supers...I want to say it was their preferred approach for doing comb honey. Regardless, I remember it being said that they simply used a small board to serve as a top on the exposed portion of the 10 frame box, where it transitioned to the 8 frame box.
I was thinking about doing the same to be able to put this equipment to use. So....my question is....Is it as simple as that...throwing a small board on as a cover? Or, will this cause other issues :?. For example, the increased potential of rain getting into the hive? I can possibly think of a couple of ways to make it more weather proof...My question is...Is that necessary?
