Re: Foundationless frames: all-round wax starter-strips
Now that Larry (I believe) brought this up..
Thinking back - indeed, there are cases when they might attach the comb to the bottom terminator (be it a strip or a bar or a wire - some bottom comb terminator).
The conditions for these cases are:
1)very high bee density for the volume
2)the bottom terminator should be positioned relatively high within the cavity (within top 1/2 of the height of entire the cavity)
3)the cavity is abnormally shallow for a normal colony development
But a general, safe assumption still is - they will not attach to the bottom terminator.
