What size is right for me?

Did you know the only difference in measurements between 10 frame and 8 frame boxes is the width? 8 frame equipment is narrower than 10 frame, and not always compatible with other 8 frame equipment as dimensions vary slightly by manufacturers. 10 frame equipment offers more space for brood and honey production.

    Quality but short on nails

    by Jeff on Jun 11, 2024

    Wooden ware good fit and quality. Short on larger nails for hive body build. If 9 nails/corner x 4 corners---20 nails will not cover it. Simple solution as that I have other nails at home. But may be helpful to the next beekeeper with ample supply of nails sent in packaging. Frame building easy, plenty of small nails.

    Options needed

    by Paul on Apr 29, 2024

    Great product. My only gripe is with the ordering process. Why can’t options like black foundation and screened bottom boards be offered?

    Hive box

    The sides weren’t leveled. The girls will need lots of propolis to plug the gap.

    Why no options?

    by Paul Dooley on Apr 03, 2024

    Quality equipment. I’m just frustrated with the lack of options. Such as 1) black foundation being available; 2) Screened bottom boards vs solid bottom boards. 3) notched vs un-notched inner covers. Other suppliers have options. Why can’t Mann Lake have options as well?
