Okay so forget all about training bees to make smaller cells or what not. I will just agree that it can and is done.
My question is why? what good does it do? I know about the claims concerning Varroa mites and not enough room to reproduce. Other than that are their any other reasons it is beneficial to have smaller bees or smaller cells?
Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
