  • Foundationless Poll

    How much foundationless comb is in your "operation?"

    From polls I've done in the past on the Facebook group, I have found several times that about 75% of TF beekeepers use at least some foundationless.

    I went with 'Half foundationless'. As I tend to alternate my frames in the hive, one with full foundation, one with nothing but a starterstrip. I went about it this way to 'ensure' straight comb in the hive.

      It looks like 100% for this group.

          I chose to use 1” of natural wax small cell foundation as starter strips. I’m hoping that will be enough to get the ball rolling straight.
