Introduction to beekeeping video – Episode 3

Third in the series, making up Brood and Super frames is a necessary skill. Both types share a common approach to the way they are put together.

Note also that when you look to buy frames, DN1 and SN1 have straight side bars so these frames will have to be spaced, using either plastic or castellated spacers in the hive. DN4 and SN4 have Hoffman side bars so are self spacing. We would certainly recommend using Hoffman side bars to begin with to ensure correct spacing in both Super and Brood boxes and to keep things simple.

With regard to foundation, standard wired is the most common product used in the majority of hives. Click here to see Episode 3.
