*A Special Note about Gold Star top bars:
Interchangeability between hives is crucial in supporting other natural beekeepers using clean, natural wax. Please be aware that 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.) This one simple fact - interchangeability - enables you to solve problems between hives, and provides a wonderful way for you to be able to support new top bar beekeepers.
