Drawing out foundation
« on: March 17, 2005, 03:03:27 PM »
Thanks folks for the questions you have answered for me so far. this is such a great resource for a beggining beekeeper.

I use wax coated rite cell (plastic foundation) in my honey super. I have coated frames with more bees wax by brushing it on, took off my Bee I mean Queen Excluder, put on an illinois honey super and feeding them 1:1 sugar water. I put this pail feeder on top of my super.
The bees are starting to draw out the rite cell now.

My question is? When do i put on another super with undrawn foundation on it?

And do i put it above or below the one on there now?

Thank you Beekeepers......SH

Check out this post. It is still an active post and has wandered a bit but has the info in it you are looking for.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world
