Probably a question for the founders/staff:
We are getting ready to put on a coat of wax on the flow frames so that they are more acceptable to the bees when we finally have an opportunity to add on the supers (our girls are a little slow to fill out the second brood box). While laying out the Flow Frames, I noticed that some of the wires weren’t wound as tight as others, so I took the time to go through each frame and make them match, basically four twists on the top and three on the bottom, which seemed to be the standard.
However, on the bottom of the frames, on the end opposite where the honey will be withdrawn, there are two notches for the wire to catch. All are on the bottom-most one, but I’m curious why the second notch is there and under what circumstances we would course the wire there? It’s not much of a difference - really just the diameter of the wire, but surely you had a reason for it?
Thanks in advance.
