Last year I rehearsed in about 20 hives put only a small strip about 2 cm wax on top of the frames. My intention was that the bees build the comb with the size that they wanted . I had put these frames in the hive interchangeably with other already pulled . The frames was placed in February, at a time when queens have a good laying and often are prepared to swarm.
I found the following :
1 ) pulling the wax faster than the blade into frames with full wax ;
2 ) The Queen began to lay eggs almost simultaneously with the pull wax ;
3 ) pulled in too many cases drone cells .
If point 1 ) and 2 ) I quite liked the point 3 ) led me to stop the experiment .
I wonder if point 3 ) is normal in these conditions? What did I do wrong ? What should be done to that point 3 ) had not happened ?
