I just got my first hives going this spring, so of course now I'm learning all about Varroa. I've been reading about using small cell foundation and it seems like kindof a no-brainer to try it.
Couple of questions though
I've read several places where it wasn't recomended for beginers
Um, scuze me, I want my bees to live too
Is there something inherintly difficult about it??
I also read about regressing the bee's to use it
I assume if they've been on standard foundation it takes some effort to get them to switch over to the small cell stuff.
How does one go about doing this?
Is this why it's not recomended for beginers?
I got 2 packages of bees this spring from Brushy Mountain which actually came from Wilbanks Apiary in Ga, and put 1 in a single a deep with new beeswax coated plastic foundation and one in some equipment I got from a friend which already had drawn comb.
Info much appreciated
