Do you think this wax paper covering one side of a frame of brood comb would work? I only want the queen to lay on one side. The problem I foresee is getting her on it on day 1.
rast said:Yes, 8 frame. I've never tried this before. Not to worried about burr comb. Frame has to be high enough so there is room for cells to hang down and not be against the tops of the frames below.
Yes G3, a frame with 4 day larva is supported on its side above a queenless hive.
Yes G3, I was thinking about using coroplast. That sign stuff.G3farms said:could you cut a piece of 1/4" paneling and fit it over one side of a frame of foundation. The bees could only get to one side to draw it out, then after eggs are placed in the newly drawn cells pull it out and put it in your Hopkins frame.
