I used commercial foundation that I cut into strips about 1.5 inches long as my starter strips for my TBH. So far I'm very pleased with how straight they have been drawing the comb and I think the starter strips have a lot to do with it.
However, I'm curious about whether or not the bees will ultimately vary the cell size as they work their way down from the strips? Or, does the cell size that they start building off these foundations end up dictating the cell size for the rest of the comb extended from it?
I guess I can start measuring for myself and will try to be good about doing so and report back, but I'm guessing I'm not the first one to try this and also be curious about it so I was hoping someone might be able to report their own experiences.
Thanks in advance.
