When I did my early spring splits this year I used frames with starter strips as replacements for the drawn frames I removed from my hives. This was in late March. The vast majority of those frames were drawn with drone cells. I've managed to cull or move most of them out of the brood nests since.
I know another beekeeper who started about 40 hives from packages using only starter strips. She says that hers were drawn mostly as worker cells.
If there are any conclusions to be drawn from this, I think its that when starting from scratch a colony of bees may do a pretty good job of drawing out starter strips. On the other hand, placing starter strips between already drawn frames, in early spring, will likely produce drone sized cells.
Next spring I'm planning to start about 20 -30 hives from packages. I'll try to do about half with strips only and half with foundation.
I might add that I used a few starter strips last year. The lesson I learned from that was to be sure to wire the frames you plan to use without foundation.
