I am getting my packages this weekend. I am using new plastic frames, but I also have a few frames of drawn comb. Should I put a frame or two of drawn comb in each hive or would I be better off to put all of the drawn comb in a single hive and on new frames in the others? Or save the drawn comb for swarm traps?

Thanks

If you have drawn comb place the undrawn comb between the two drawn combs, staggering them. This will let the bees draw out the foundation normally and really cut down on burr and other crazy comb formations off your new foundation.
