    Question

    Hi I was wondering if any one has tried using the drone foundation that they sell for mite control/ mite detection as foundation on honey supers . It seems like you could fit more honey and pollen in drone comb than normal comb . Has any one tried this?

    I used drone frames last year for varroa control, and ended up leaving them in during the fall goldenrod flow, because the bees were filling them with honey.

    I bought four DE hives and found out the hard way that David Eyre believes its the only thing to use in supers. I had to put the excluders back on.

    But they sure extract easy.
