I'm buying a couple of new honey supers to replace old ones and trying to decide if I should get wood frames with wax foundation, wood frames with plastic foundation, or plastic frames?

 

Whats your take on it?

Plastic are far less work in the long run, but the bees seem a bit reluctant to use them and the comb isnt usually  as deep.

Well our bees prefer wax and wood, yes its more work for us.

But we are more about whats better for the bees, we are worried that as the hive heats up the plastic may give off fumes.

Thats my 10 cents worth Lisa...See ya...Gary

I've started to use plastic frames,My bees don't seem to mind.Also they don't get damaged during extraction.
