    Default Homemade Foundationless Frames for Comb Honey Production

    Recently, I created my new web page devoted to the Homemade Foundationless Frames for comb honey production:
    http://www.beebehavior.com/foundationless_frames.php

    I hope this information will be useful for some forum members.

    Boris, are those med. depth frames? Looks like it, but just want to be sure. And that 5-Day Progress picture is amazing... how many frames were drawn out like that in 5 days? Thanks for sharing!

    Boris, do you use foundationless in your brood boxes? Are your brood boxes mediums or deeps? If you use deeps, do you wire your frames? How does the natural cell hold up when moving brood boxes from one location to another?

    On your honey frames, how do they and the wax hold up to extraction? Thanks

    -Yes,
    but I also use wooden frames with Pierco foundations:

    Are your brood boxes mediums or deeps?
    - Deep only, usually two deeps.

    If you use deeps, do you wire your frames?
    - Yes. I hope I will add new photos soon.

    How does the natural cell hold up when moving brood boxes from one location to another?
    - I do not move (relocate) my hives.

    On your honey frames, how do they and the wax hold up to extraction?
    - I do not use foundationless frames for liquid honey production. For this purpose I use “Pierco 1-Piece” and wooden frames with Pierco foundations.

    I use foundationless frames mainly for comb honey production.

    Once again my bees confirmed the size of cells they prefer.
