Re: Today in the Apiary
I recently posted about how one of my hives was refusing to draw on some brand new Acorn plastic frames I was given. Well, last week I needed to add another super to one of my hives and I was out of mediums, so I added a deep with my normal foundationless frames mixed in between used Acorn frames that I had scraped and rewaxed. If you guessed that the bees were drawing the foundationless and ignoring the plastic, you'd be wrong. It is exaxtly the opposite. All five of the plastic frames have new comb started on them and the foundationless frames are bare. It is a first for me so I thought I would share.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
