    Default Where can I find small cell foundation?

    Everything I see here in the forum references plastic one piece frame and cells. I'm not interested in those and would like to find small cell foundation which I can use to replace the foundation I have. So if you know of where I can buy some I would appreciate the info. Thank you.

    Whalers, you must be referring to Permacomb or Honey Super Cell. The other two options are wax foundation available from the above mentioned retailers and Mann Lake's PF-100 and PF-120 frames which are one piece plastic but do not include the whole cell, only the frame and foundation. These are what I recommend for quicker regression to small cell comb as the bees find it harder to rework than the wax. Some people prefer to cut the plastic foundation part out of the frame and use it in wooden frames as well.

    I have been using the wax for nearly nine years now and just started using PF frames last year.

    Many firms carry the small cell wax foundation, but turn the box over and see where the carton was made. Many are made in the Hamilton IL. area. What does that tell you?

    I think he's insinuating that it's all made by Dadant. I could be wrong.
