    the way I do it, just like cut comb, when the early flows start put on a regular super, when they start to fill it, slide a ross round underneath it, only on really good strong hive in a really good flow, as they fill the middle, rotate them to the outside, and keep your fingers crossed, they do work just like a queen excluder ususally.

    Yep, that's the way I do it. Just gotta watch the ends frames and rotate to the middle to get them capped.

    I find in my area it is as much luck as skill I usually put them on with a good honey flow, sometimes they fill them others they ignore them. It is not a big market for me so I don't go to great lengths to produce them. I find it much easier to alternate foundationless frames in honey supers and just make cut comb for people who want comb/chunk honey.
