Its peculiarity is that the head is removed.
It is made dovetail and slides with relative ease. With the disassembled head is ready to paste wax and connect it to a Layens or Langstroth frame to enter the desired hive for the bees to build honeycomb.

The Layens frame is special but the external dimensions are standard and can be manufactured in any size respecting internal measures. And so it is with 4 mini frames mounted ready to get to the hive.

The Langstroth frame is also special as the Layens, external measures are standard. And thus it is mounted with the same mini frames but instead of 4 only with 3 mini frames.

Once the wax is stretched and contains brood are removed, they placed the head and taken to the mating nucleus.
