*A Special Note about Interchangeability and Gold Star top bars:
As one's bee yard grows, interchangeability between hives is crucial! This one simple feature - interchangeability - enables you to solve problems between hives, simplifies all your hive management, and provides a wonderful way for you to be able to support new top bar beekeepers. The Gold ⭐️ Star top bar will fit in Golden Mean top bar hives and Bee Thinking top bar hives. (Unfortunately, the reverse is not true.)
