Rather than hijack others threads about small cell comb, I was hoping someone could shed some light on something I've been wondering about.

With repeated brood cycles, wouldn't those larger cells eventually shrink to small cells with each successive layer of cocoons anyway?

Before mites were a problem, I understood we were to change out old brood comb because these smaller cells weren't as well accepted by the queen.

Thanks for any attempts to update my old lessons.

Thanks, Steve
