Top or Bottom Bee Space
National Brood Chamber, or Brood Box
This is the box that the bees raise their young in.
It is called a brood chamber or brood box for this reason. It is
properly known as the 'British Standard Deep Box'.
It is also called a 'deep' or 'deep box' and confusingly it can be known as a 'deep super' if it is used for honey gathering.
Use for raising brood is most prevalent. However in USA it is common for all boxes to be 'deeps' for interchangeability. In UK we adopt shallow boxes for honey and deep ones for brood to avoid breeding occurring in frames that are to be extracted from.
