I am planning an order for wooden frames and wax foundations, both in medium super and deep box sizes. The nearest supply place to me for driving (to avoid shipping my new hives) is BetterBee. here are the choices they give for wax foundations: http://www.betterbee.com/departments2.a ... 121&bot=83 and for wooden frames: http://www.betterbee.com/products.asp?dept=348 I plan to order two deeps and one medium super for each of my two new hives. I plan to leave the deeps for brood (we are in NY state, cold northeast) and only extract honey from medium top supers. My question about the wax foundation is: Should I get non wired wax foundation for the deep brood boxes, or the wired deep foundations? (will not be taking honey from there) (I do plan on getting wired wx foundations for the medium supers.) And my question about the wooden frames is: I'm confused about their choices for "grooved, wedge, or split" tops and bottoms of the frames. Can someone guide me here as to what I'd need based on my hive plan? I'm thinking that I would want wedge tops to use with my wax foundations? But what about the frame bottoms? thanks for any help!
