I have been mostly foundationless with a couple of sheets of small cell to get them off to a straight start. Previously I have been cutting and crushing to get my honey, which is nice because my husband uses the wax for woodworking projects.
However, this next year I would like to extract it using a honey extractor. It is my understanding I will need to wire in the foundation, so it doesn't crumble to pieces as it is spinning.
Does anyone know, if I put in the wires without foundation between them, will they build them into their comb or will they just go crazy trying to get around the wires? Anyone have any experience with this?
