Parkboy, I am running natural comb in deep frames without crosswiring. It is a little soft for the first month. I do not turn them sideways until they are connected on three sides. It has not caused any apparent issues for me.
Do you have any specific question you want answered or just seeing if wiring was a waste of time? I have heard that wax foundations can droop and fall out if not wired, I have not tried to see for myself.
Wax foundation.Are you using wax foundation or plastic? If plastic...you don't need to wire..period. If you are using wax foundation and you plan to extract honey from it, I'd recommend that you crosswire it. If it's only going to be used for raising brood and you don't plan to extract it then you can safely go without wiring....just handle carefully for the first few weeks after it's been drawn out....a good idea regardless.
Fishing line...... Thats a good idea as long as it wont hurt anything. I guess ill go with fishing line. Does it matter what lb. line?Parkboy a good ole Kentucky guy should have some fishing line laying around?? Fishing line works too. The bees will incorporate it into the comb as they draw it. :thumbsup: As stated some wire some dont. Down here in the heat I have to wire foundation will buckle and fall out of the frame. Plus I extract. Up to you but with just a few frames wont take that much time and certainly wont hurt anything. Good luck
