Shopping for quality-The workmanship of these hives is amazing. Langstroth 11 frame brood 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 addition of the 11th frame allows for more bees to be raised in the brood chamber cross comb is reduced, more happier bees.
Waksol dipped, 32mm brood frames and heavy solid wood lid not chip board. Can not get better in SA, All frames screwed to and bottom. Bottom board is attached to the brood box.
