Best of both Worlds...Wood bound plastic super frame
Out of Necessity I decided plastic frames would be best for my budget and time managment. After two years and 12 hives of experience of buying what a specific vendor has on hand at the exact time of my need I stumbled on wood bound frames for my medium supers. As it turned out...my second year honey harvest consisted of about 14 medium supers. About 8 were all plastic and from year one so mostly if not completely drawn out. Four supers had new all plastic frames and two were new wood bound plastic frames I bought because I was in a pinch. During the harvest I noticed each wood bound frame was pulled out 100% and full of honey making it very easy for my uncles uncapping machine to nicely remove the cappings. The new all plastic frames were poorly drawn out and quite shallow making it difficult for the uncapper basically resulting in uncapping by hand for every new all plastic frame.
Year three I purchased sixty more medium frames of wood bound plastic...almost everyone was drawn out perfectly..even better than the all plastic frames that had been previously pulled out.
In my limited two year study I found that bees will work plastic but not all plastic is created equal. Seems the wood surrounding the plastic is much more attractive to a bee than an unnatural man made product. In fact the wood bound medium super frames out performed my uncles standard frames he has used for years.
Ease of use and excellent performance has convinced me in my short time as a beekeeper that wood bound frames is a superior product.
Of note...I used American food grade plastic in all my frames.
