This is our first year – we’ll be installing 2 packages in a week or two (might add a third), and are using all 8 frame deep boxes. Although we have wax foundation we have that needs to be installed in frames soon, it’s “standard” 5.4mm cell. I’ve heard a lot of the yeas and nays but I think I’d rather start with natural "small" cell from the get go. Can I start with 4.9mm cell foundation or should I use 5.1 which I'd be stuck with for some time? If/when I need new packages in the future am I compromising the packages with small cell comb? In the unlikely event we provided small cell bees to anyone with standard 5.4mm cell combs, what are the problems with that? Thanks for any help.
