Re: What is the secret to Ross Rounds?
Running colonies for comb honey is not the same as running them for honey production. Find some comb honey production manuals or pamphlets.
One thing you need to do is run bees at the edge of swarming. You will have to shake your strongest hives down into one box and install the comb honey supers above an excluder. You will also have to check for queen cells periodically and destroy them.
