Thanks as always Trev, a great watch. Can I ask where you got your pricing for the FD boxes from? A can see a FD kitset from Ceracell is $15.75: [URL="http://www.ceracell.co.nz/shop/Hive+Component/Supers/Full+depth+super/-WDW6531/x_sku/WDW6531.html"]Full depth super commercial untreated kitset | Full depth super | Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies | Auckland | New Zealand[/URL] And it looks like a FD paradise box from 4 your bees is $39.50: [URL="http://www.4yourbees.com/langstroth-fd-box/"]Langstroth FD Box[/URL] I think you said the prices were $26 vs. $31?

Remember GST is extra and transport $26.00 is the local price for kitset premium grade at my local supplier. (That's why I make my own boxes.) I bought my EPS boxes from Chris Patterson and that's what I paid for my EPS boxes. In fact $23 for the 3/4 boxes. He was at the Taupo Conference.

Thanks [USER=72]@Trevor Gillbanks[/USER] I enjoy watching your informative videos. With this though, it's more expensive, requires more steps like painting the inside and needing to glue the joints, it needs a weight to keep the lid from blowing off, more easily prone to bees or pests chewing it and you're right about securing the mesh because I had to use pins to pin the mesh down on the double nuc. I'm not really seeing how this is more advantageous to wood, is there something I missed? This is very relevant to me as I'm currently trying to buy a few more FD boxes and wondering if I should try something else.
