I have an empty hive that I picked up used last year, and the comb and foundation in it is pretty trashed. I'm thinking of trying frameless with this hive, but not sure how to start. Can I clean all the frames and just leave the wires and expect a swarm (when I get one) to build everything from scratch, or do I have to use starter strips? If they do build on the frames, should I expect this hive to be as easy to work as my other, which is all Pierco?
Thanks in advance!
