...seems to me that reading comprehension would be an important skill when one is paraphrasing an article or a study...apparantly not.

I guess I missed it completely. Sorry, but I wasn't putting Dee Lusby down. I find her to be an amazing person, one I would emmulate. And I certianly wasn't putting down Africanized bees. I wish I had some. Afterall, they seem to be doing much better than the kept population. They are doing what Natural Beekeepers wish they could do with their bees, surviving in great numbers. And since we now know that smaller cell size probably isn't the reason, I would love to have a few hives of them, just to see what they do differently.
I'm sorry if I mistook your excitability, in the video, for being overwhelmed by so many thousands of bees in the air. I would certainly be overwhelmed, but I know you are much more experianced than I.

In the video you talk about the orientation of the foundation-less frame based on the hosel, if I heard right.

Michael Bush has some information on Housel positioning on his website.

That's more like it.

Thanks CB!

After deknow's an off the mark reply, I did a lot more Googling and found out it was Housel Positioning he was referring to, as you point out. There are a number of discussions on this board as well. It is an interesting phenomenon. I looked at a lot of drawn comb yesterday and found it hard to recognize.

The best article I found (with diagrams) was here.

p.s. BTW, I assumed the frames were foundation-less as a lot of them Dee pulled out in the videos had comb that either, wasn't attached to the side(s) of the frame, or the bottom of the frame, as are with some of my foundation-less frames.

Dee makes her own foundation, and ALWAYS leaves empty space at the bottom...this gives the bees an opurtunity to build the 10-15% drone comb that they will always try to build.  Many who have seen these videos have assumed that they were "set up", and that the burr comb that most beekeepers evenetually find between boxes had been scraped....this is not the case, Dee gives the bees plenty of room to build the drone comb they want, and therefore there is very little burr comb between boxes.
