Started 3 lbs. of Georgia "party girls" plus Queen Mary Bee on some old drawn foundation and the group has been working up two deeps pretty good. I put a medium super on top of these deeps but I stripped out two frames of wired foundation and put 3 strips of just wax foundation remnants for "starter" on each empty frame. I was hoping the girls would throw me a bone and make up some comb honey for the ol' money bag man who's financing their lavish digs. They can keep the rest for the coming winter! We'll see what happens this fall.
Where should it be put? I bought thin sheet comb foundation and put 5 frames of it in the middle of the super a week ago. They are drawing the foundation out but I am going to check on which they are drawing more the regular duragilt or thin comb. I just peeked quickly under the covers. I will move frames if thought neccessary. Thanks for any thoughts.
