This is a topic that I am sure has been covered before, but I will ask it again. What are your preferences for foundation for brood and extracting supers? I am new to beekeeping but I have a beekeeper friend who is going to help me get going.
I have never heard anything good about plastic, so that is not an option. I am trying to decide between Rite-Cell (Mann Lake) and wired foundation. I have 500+ wedge top frames (deeps and mediums) that I bought new off of another beekeeper and the thought of wiring them all is overwhelming. I am willing to do it if it means greater bee acceptance. Had thought about using wired for the brood and Rite-Cell for the extracting supers. I also have a few new 7 5/8 boxes and can only seem to find Rite-Cell foundation to fit. Is it a problem mixing foundation?
Any thoughts would be helpful.
