    Mine have been in two weeks, in several different hives, no laying yet, some not touched much at all, some have nectar pollen, ones swelled up fat with sugar syrup.

FWIW, I notice you checkerboarded the bettercomb in one of your colonies. The instructions advise not to do that. It will be interesting to see how those frames do. Please keep us posted.

    Frederick Dunn is trying this product out on a late-collected swarm this season. He will post updates, but I find it encouraging that the swarm immediately began bringing in pollen rather than expending their immediate energy on drawing out comb. So, I do suspect the top valid uses for the Better Comb are swarms & honey-bound hives...

    Fred just posted his latest video on the synthetic comb. He caught a swarm on Aug. 4 and put it in a hive with several frames of the synthetic comb. To this date he showed all stages of brood and it seemed like the bees to a liking to it??
