Deep supers are usually used for the brood chambers. The brood chamber is where the queen lays her eggs, and the young bees are raised.
At Dadant and Sons, our Deep supers can come either assembled or unassembled and in different grades of wood.
Select-grade wood is a higher quality wood that only has small tight knots and no changes in the joints or rabbets.
Commercial-grade wood is the most popular choice by beekeepers. Tight knots can be found throughout the super made out of Ponderosa pine.
Economy-grade wood has the same specifications as commercial-grade but is of lower quality. Perfect for the beekeeper on the budget that is just starting out.
