Re: Help with Comb Honey
For me it was hit or miss this past season, mostly miss. I use foundationless frames for my comb honey and place them in the center positions of a super in which the bees have already shown an inclination to draw comb early. Even still, I had 10 medium frames, 2 per hive, and only had one hive carry them to completion. Most of my production hives swarmed thIs Spring, so honey came from last year's overwintered nucs. Netted me four really nice straight and fully capped half frame sections of about 1-1/2# each.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
