Sorry to bug you guys again with more stupid question.
OK,I have been doing some reading on Small Cell after it was suggested that I might look into using it.
As usual the more I read the more confused I get.
I am using two deeps for the brood and then mediums for the supers as I need them. I am planing on using plain foundation in the supers with a queen excluder.
The bees I will be getting will be Italians.
So to start out I need 40 frames of foundation(2 hives) in the brood nest which I would like to be Small Cell.
I have read about using starter strips and full size foundation. Which is best for me to use?
What do I do after the bees are in and drawing the comb out?
Basically what I am asking is if somebody could explain to me in an easy to follow(for dummy's) way what do I need,how do I do it,when do I do it and anything else that somebody of my non experience should know.
I don't want this to turn out to be a hard and expensive hobby to have but I think I am making it that way myself.
Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.
