If you wish to make Basswood section comb honey on a commercial basis, as did Mr. Killian, it is advisable, and although not necessary, one of the best ways. We aware, that this is an intense style of beekeeping, and maybe not for a neophyte.
Lets see, more honey, fewer mites. No chemicals. This is a bad thing?
We have practiced this method most years for comb honey production, at least since the 50's.
