Re: First Hives - Foundation-less from Scratch
I also started from scratch with foundationless frames and a package. I also used MB's flipped wedge approach. All combs were nice and straight. My only issue was amount of comb. They didn't fill out the frames completely. Most better than 50% in two deep boxes. I think 5 frames were drawn 75% or more. 1 and 10 were nearly blank in the bottom deep. This year I am going to 8 frames and starting with a box of foundation hoping they draw more wax. I'll checkerboard foundationless from there.
