Why do people import or try to breed a bee that will reproduce to such an extent that the standard brood box is not big enough? I can't think that having 22 frames of brood frames is easier than working through 2 hives having 11 frames each. Yes there is the cost but I can't see 1 huge colony collecting more honey than 2 colonies at half that size.
