I'm a newbie at beekeeping, but from what I've read, it seems like SC is the way to go.
I started out with a beeginner kit of 2 deeps and plastic foundation and now I'm trying to migrate to all mediums and SC.
So my forst move ws to put in a couple of frame of SC foundation into the deeps to see what happened.
Next, my plan is to introduce 1 medium box at a time of SC starter strips toward the bottom of the hive and let them draw, raise brood on it, then introduce another box. The first box have been in for a week and I took a picture I thought was interesting
notice the starter strip, which is 4.9 mm is quite nicely drawn.
Here's a deep sheet.
My earlier experiments with whole sheets weren't nearly as evenly drawn. What I thought was interesting is it looks like when they got off the strip they started drawing larger cells.
I'm getting my poop together and building a frame stand so I can take better pictures. I'm gonna get a scale in the picture so I can measure how many pixels an inch is then I can do a better inspection of the cell structure at my leisure after the inspection.
