Re: Finally.. they drew out part of a frame. Does this look like good??
Dan, the bees should not be able to draw out 'fins' of comb on top of comb- unless you are spacing your frames too far apart. Make sure the frames are all pushed tightly together in the middle of your box. Leave any space to the very sides next to the wood walls. Cut off the fins and push your frames together tightly.
I can't comment on the slow drawing of the plastic foundation, since I don't use plastic foundation. My bees are not as slow in drawing comb- I use both wax foundation and foundationless.
