Okay I have been reading through all the small cell info and have come to ask some questions. What is the best setup for the beekeeper? My thoughts are a hive that uses 4.9 mm foundation for the brood area with a screened bottom board with honeybees that are feral survivors. Then for management of remaining mites use drone frames that are pulled and frozen to eliminate the mites that are there all the time.I really would like to eliminate all chemical treatments and wonder if this could be the right path to follow. I want to thank everyone ahead of time for any help they can offer.
