We received this information and wanted to pass it along.
I am reducing the number of hives and have some equipment to sell. I have 40 to 50 deep hive body frames assembled with wired wax foundation, with hooks. I also added the 4 wires through the holes on the sides of the frames. They have never been in a hive. I would like to sell them for $2.50 each. If interested contact Donna Rogers in Emporia.
