I have about 2:1 ratio of frames with starter strip only, and wax foundation. I prefer the starter strips to allow the bees to build cell size of their own choosing, but have every third with was foundation to create a "block" in hopes it will keep them going straight. My frames with starter strip have 2 horizontal support wires, so without the bottom bar they wouldn't remain the proper shape. I've been wondering about attaching some sort of block to the bottom bars just to take up some space down there, basically a strip of 1"x1" (roughly). This would remove the gap, give added gathering space off the combs, and be removable to return the frames to their original purpose. Any reasons this would be a bad idea?
