Breeding Station Hive of Dave Cushman

This unit is rather large and heavy, but it was never intended to be used as a normal bee hive ad is in fact permenantly bolted down to a heavy duty tressle.

37 mm was chosen for the frame pitch on this unit as such a wide spacing allows for drone frames and other special frames to be accomodated. The precise spacing of each individual frame is governed by the width of the Hoffmann 'wings' of each frame as the frames are pushed together and any excess space is taken up by a division board of suitable thickness for the gap concerned.
