Re: Ross Round Comb Hives??
Running a colony for the production of comb honey of any sort takes experience and knowledge, dare I say, beyond that of a beginner and many, if not most, experienced beekeepers. There are books, articles and chapters in books dewdicated to thge How To of comb honey production.
The late Ray Churchill, from near Watertown, NY wrote an article, which I believe was printed in Gleanings in Beeculture, many years ago. He produced alot of comb honey. And may have produced more comb honey off of one hive than anyone else.
I have a copy of that article at home, 1,000 miles away, or I would quote some of it fore you.
I suggest anyone who seriously wants to produce comb honey might want to do some research.
