iis there a "this side up" on starter strips?
randydrivesabus, there is some work on Housel positioning that would suggest that there IS an up or down to the starter strips (any foundation). I used it in the last box I put on a hive which had been building messy comb from starter strips in hopes that it would help....we'll see.
Here's a reference:http://cordovan-honeybee.com/housel/index.htm
I believe that Michael Bush has not found it to be particularly necessary and has some interesting pictures on his site about confused up and down combhttp://forum.beemaster.com/index.php?topic=2826.msg20221#msg20221
- you can search the beemaster site for more on housel positioning, however and read more about it.
