This last fall I lost both of my hives - probably mites. So I am starting over this spring and already have a couple packages ordered to go into to medium sized frames/hives. In one of the hives I am going foundationless. So the question is how to get started so I don't have a mess. I have thought about putting one frame of plastic SC in the middle as a guild. So first Question - any problem with that?
Secondly, I have drawn comb that I could use, but it is large cell foundation. Seems like I could start with it and then eventually work it to the outside of the brood chamber and remove it. I'm interested in what people think would be the best option. Thank you.
