Whilst the 22 mm width top bars are included in the drawings
for the other B.S. frame types. As they are more trouble than the
small savings in cost are worth in the increased handling time, that

They are not included here as it would be silly to suggest that such
a hinderance would be tolerated in a 'Commercial' undertaking

Native bees, but it is used in the southern parts of England, where
the majority of stocks are of foreign strains that need the extra
warmth and generate large amounts of brood.
This type of hive has its supporters, but it is not
successfully used much further north than Northampton.
