These unassembled cell bars are specially designed for the Nicot queen rearing system . The two galvanized strips are punched with 13 holes each into which the cell bar holders fit tightly. When the cells are finished they may be popped off and moved to re-queen a colony or to a mating nuc. Cell protector cages are shown but are not included and must be ordered separately. Frames are 9 1/8" tall.
Brushy Mountain does a good job in providing quality equipment and woodenware. However I was disappointed in the four frames with the metal cell bars. The thin sheet metal bars that hold the cells are not rigid and sag. The bars easily slide out of the slots in the end bar and I lost a bar of grafts when one slid out and fell to the ground. It may have been a good idea on paper but who road tested it before it hit the catalog?
