I was reading in the hardware review section about Mannlake Foundations and am now a little confused.
What foundtation size does one need and if you use the 4.9 size in the honey supers in the spring...does that mean they only fill them with honey?
I have Plastiform in the 2 10 frame deeps I was given to start my hive and have one extra to place on top if they fill those up.......doesn't look like they will as the outer 2 or 3 frames on the top box have no wax drawn out on them as of yet.....so just leaving them alone and feeding them for the winter (9a/9b zone).
I was thinking of going to foundationless frames and let them do all the work so as to make it as natural as possible...making it easier to take out the queen cells as people are discussing....thoughts?
I made a few medium 10 frame boxes...so make the empty frames?
One other thought....can I cut the plastiforms I have down to say 1 inch and put those in just to give them a start?
