jerry, have you measure the comb to see what size it was , if those bee's are regressed, you can order 4.9 cell foundation from dadant.http://www.dadant.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=38&products_id=79
then you dont have to regress and you can start your own small cell research this year on how small cell bee's do, those bee's you have are probably survivors anyway if they been there a few years!
the thing I would like to hear about small cell is that someone get's about 50 hive of italians that wouldn't survive with out chemicals and regress those 50 to small cell then take the chemicals away, after a year I would like to know how many survived. if i can see a experiment like that I might believe small cell is the way to go, but until then I have to got with mite tolerant bee's. the only small cell bee's I have heard about could have the resistant trait's in them , most were survivor hives (feral)anyway or hive that wasnt lost when the other's in there bee yard was lost.
