Re: Is SC business plan, small sell?
You can't just stick a couple of frames of SC foundation into a LC hive and expect the comb to be drawn out to match the sc.
Yes, I'm asking this somewhat facetiously.
What if you had a source of queens that were from adapted small cell colonies and you requeened 100 colonies that are on large cell combs with the small cell queens. Could the resulting workers properly draw out small cell?
I am looking for an answer to this question and should have enough information to draw some conclusions early next spring.
