    Default Question about shallow supers

    When starting shallow supers for cut comb honey, do you attach a small strip of wax as foundation or do you let the bees do it all? Photos would help. Never done this before.

    With complete frames minus the foundation, they will do just fine for the most part. Although, you could have that rare hive that will build crosswise. Just keep an eye on it for the first few days.
