Shopping for quality-The workmanship of these hives is amazing. Langstroth 11 frame brood (correct number for SA) and 10 super wired with wax strips. ( You can request 9 super frames and spacer fitted in super)
SA bees are a little smaller than the European bee. So in resent times the 32mm spacing allows an additional 11th frame allows for more bees to be raised in the brood chamber, cross comb is reduced, more happier bees.
Waksol dipped, heavy solid wood lid (not chip board). Can not get better in SA, All frames screwed top and bottom. Bottom board is attached to the brood box.
unfixed bottom boards and brood boxes also available.
