I like the pic is that what you call small cell hives?   :oops:


If you mean my picture by my name, it's natural comb from a large cell commercial package of bees with a Carniolan queen.  Some of the comb is 4.7mm

The regressed bees often build as small as 4.6mm and as large as 5.1mm

Here's a large version of the picture.
