? i don't have a hive but thinking about it and i was wondering do you have to use foundation in your frames in your hives i remember when i was a boy my papaw took a knife and cut the honey comb and all out and i remember he had what look like a Langley hive
Welcome to the forum, I think you mean a langstroth hive, unless your pawpaw worked for the CIA.
In general, you have three choices...You can use wax foundation, plastic foundation, or go foundation-less. They also make some wax foundation specifically for if you want to make comb honey. All have their pluses and minuses, you can read plenty of discussions about the pros and cons of each here on the forum.
I'm still a newbie, just a little over a year into it. Up to this point I've only used wax foundation. Out of curiosity, I'm going to try some Pierco plastic this season...Probably will eventually give foundation-less a serious try but wanted to get a few years under my belt first.
