Finally made the switch in hopes my back appreciates the move. Bees were pretty confused but are settling in nicely.
10 frame deep of bees, brood and honey goes 80 pounds. 8 frame goes 64. A ten frame honey super weighs 40 pounds while the 8 frame is 32. Wish I had done this sooner. Cutting down 10 frame equipment is a pain, but worth it...I hope.
The Saz hive had 10 frames of brood already while the Carni had five. Impressive start to the season.
