I'm a firm believer in foundationless frames. I currently have about 30 hives, all foundationless, but my plan is to increase to 300 or so hives over the next couple years. Is there anyone out there who runs hundreds of hive foundationless, or is it not practical when going that big? I find foundationless to be somewhat labor intensive at first, because you have to stay after the bees to get the frames all drawn out straight on the center of the frames. For me this involves going into the hives frequently after adding new boxes, trimming comb, bending it into place here and there, and rotating undrawn frames in between already drawn frames, in short, its alot of work to get it drawn correctly. Once drawn properly, foundationless is just as good as comb built on foundation, actually its better, because you don't have all the chemicals in the wax. With a small number of hives, foundationless is really not too bad, but when I think about all the work in getting hundreds and hundreds of boxes of foundationless frames drawn out correctly, I really wonder if it is worth all the trouble. Any opinions on this? Thanks.
