I spent the day today building new frames and putting together 4.9 foundation for a new package of bee which will arive in next weekend. I'd just like to ask the group for key pieces of information on setting up this new hive based on their personal experiance.
I also wired up several frames of drone foundation - a sheet for each of my hives to be used as a Verroa collection point. I was wondering if there was any specific place in the order of frames that folks would recommend placing it to maximize it's effectiveness - in being drawn out and then filled by the queen.
I know much of this has been touched upon before, so if you would prefer to email me directly to reduce band width, please feel free to do so.
