Re: Natural Cell vs. Small Cell
Hmm.. well that's very interesting Specialkayme. When I let my bees do natural cell they went larger also, I mentioned it here on beesource and got the distinct impression noone believed me!
I think it's a bit over simplistic to say that all bees in all situations regress eventually to 4.9, in many cases I think the only way is to force them to do it, with foundation.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
