Re: Expanding while mixing foundation and foundation-less
I believe that many people have good success with that, and use it as a way to go foundationless after having begun with foundation.
My own experience is that my bees avoid foundationless frames when given a choice. I've had them in my hives consistently over the past few months (this year and last), and the foundation always gets drawn; the foundationless frames go untouched. Without a choice, I imagine that the foundationless frames would be drawn just fine. Your experience may well be very different from mine.
