If I order small-cell bees and queens (I was thinking of packages from Buckeye Bee) and I start the hives with just starter strips of foundation in the frames - not full sheets - will the bees "remain" in small-cell mode and create brood comb with a naturally small cell size?
I have read a lot about regression, small-cell foundation, etc. etc. ... but why not just start with genetics inclined to small cell and let them do their own thing? As Mr. Bush says - "Everything works if you let it" - so why not just "let it?" What am I missing here?
