Re: First Hives - Foundation-less from Scratch
I put fishing line on some of my foundation last year. the bees ate the line out. and much of it after they had drawn comb. There could be some reasons for this other than just having some foreign object in there comb though. They where slow to get to some of the foundation and it sagged due to heat. the chewing away of the foundation may have been there way of getting comb that was the right depth for them. They did eventually get all their comb sorted out and straight but the fishing line is gone weather I like it or not.
