NZBF Twisted plastic frames

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experimented with warped frames? 

Where is the distortion? The outer structure or plastic foundation?

 

I’m thinking if I cut out the centre leaving a 25mm strip at the top the frame may sit true and the bees can draw out/down.

I gave this a try, cutting the centre out of the plastic frame, all but about 25mm at the top.

The frame sat true now. The bees continued the comb all the way down to the bottom of the frame, nice and straight.

 

its going to make nice cut comb?

Great idea. Excellent result. 

See how the freestyle cells are mostly drone size cells. Great for storing honey in, not so ideal in the brood nest.

Looks delicious?
