Re: Frames w/ foundation vs. empty frames
I had one frame I put in hive without foundation. with the frame sandwiched between drawn comb the bees seemed to do just fine. I woudl not want to try it with a box full of empty frames though.
I used a lot of wax foundation this past year with mixed results. I will be trying plastic foundation for the first time this spring. I removed the one foundation less frame from the hive and now have it in my shed. Hard to find a place to keep it safe but I have if if needed. watching to see if anything like moths mess with it.

Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
