What is the success that some of you veteran beekeepers have seen with small cell foundation? And why in the supply catalog, is small cell foundation only recommended for the experienced beekeeper? I am planning to get some bees next spring, and am currently researching all avenues of mite control, and moderm beekeeping techniques. I hope to have a good knowledge base by next spring, and really do not understand why this aspect would create any issues. If I am reading things right, the small cell foundation is closer to nature than any other foundation. Is this not true?
