Dummy Boards are a great thing to use when running on 11 Frames. Although there is space for 12 frames, it is a tight fit, causing problems when lifting out the first frame or putting back the last frame.
It is recommended that 11 Frames are used and a Dummy Board to fill in the space left. This means with the frames pushed together, and the Dummy Board placed up against the 11th Frame. This is helpful as you can then remove the Dummy Board, during inspections allowing you space during manipulating the hive.
