drawn frames ??
« on: February 21, 2009, 10:27:53 AM »
I am looking for some standard deep frames that are already drawn.  If you happen to have any extras  let me know.   trying to establish a bunch of nucs and give them already drawn frames so they can focus on other things.

I have a deep full of drawn comb. I am not sure what the foundation is, it could be that plastic, or its duragilt. not sure. If your interested PM me.
I think a couple aren't up to using, bad spot on it that they won't build on. but several are just fine.

You can buy HSC (Honey Super Cell) - fully drawn 4.9 frames, and instantly regress them at the same time.

They are standard sized, fully drawn plastic frames, so you can 9 or 10, though I would recommend 10.






Just a word of warning on buying drawn frames. Most beekeepers aren't willing to part with their good drawn frames,  so be careful you don't get old and or contaminated frames, as it could set your bees back more than giving them foundation.
