A piece is cut out of a Langstroth top-bar, the cut ends butt-jointed with glue and the bar reinforced with a comb guide in a groove.

Under the board, and resting on the top-bars, is a propolis mesh. To avoid it being propolised to the box wall, the gap should be a bee space or more, e. The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.

He thus came to use simple top-bars too and found them satisfactory except that the fragile combs needed a lot more care and thus time to remove them. Denis finds frames useful for breeding, grafting and any other operation that requires lifting a comb, but recognises that as the frames become obscured and stuck to the walls etc.

It is made of the same thickness wood as the top-bar. So he developed an intermediate between the frame and the top-bar by adding projections of a few centimetres at each end of the top-bar. Please read our page of advice for complete beginners. Under the roof is a board x mm square and 10 mm thick resting on and fixed to two battens, also 10 mm thick.

The board has holes for two commercially available bee escapes yellow circles in the sketches. These modified top-bars he calls porte-rayons or ‘comb carriers’, which we here refer to as ‘half frames’. As the above illustration with comb shows, the bees build comb past the dowel to the wall. Bottom-bar Length C x width x thickness. Translated by David Heaf from Bienenzucht.

However, another type of semi-frame using dowels has been adopted by Gareth John UK. It allows comb to be built past the dowel side-bar. He observed for a long time the construction of comb in the hives without frames and concluded that they only stick the upper tiers of their constructions to the walls of the hive.

It is illustrated here in the following sketches drawn by Bernhard Heuvel from details in Gilles Denis’ book 1: All three hives appear to be top bee-space although the Denis has a 5 mm space at the top of each box 12 mm rebate minus 7 mm top-bar and an 8 mm space at the bottom of each box mm deep box below rebate minus mm side-bar. He finds that they have all the advantages of frames and top-bars, without earre inconveniences of either. However, some of the modifications may eventually prove to be necessary, for instance in climates other than that of France, or in areas where legislation requires combs to be easily movable.
