    Was thinking I need all foundation first then when it’s done I could use foundationless between the completed frames.
    That's one reason I prefer using the foundationless in between comb vs foundation. Some of the (too much) time that I add a super of foundation, the bees will cross the comb from frame to frame, and that is a mess you don't want to deal with. It's kind of a gamble, because sometimes they do and sometimes they don't.

    That is my philosophy but if nature gets rid of the dogs then I am happy with what is left.
