cell size tends to be much more varied in natural comb beekeeping as compared to using foundation. is this something we should try to take account of in hive manipulations? as an example, in starting a nuc we may take a couple of brood, a pollen and a honey comb. that honey comb if taken from the back of the hive may be storage sized cells and not something we want in the middle of the future brood nest. should we try to mark it and remove it or are the bees able to deal with it?
all that is gold does not glitter
