So on a recommendation from my local bee keepeers I have purchased a second Brood box and frames.
I now have 8 Foundationless frames:
and 8 Foundation frames:
I was wanting to do foundationless, but worried about the bees going cross comb so I was thinking perhaps I could use a combination of both in the first brood box and eventually the second.
Does any one have any recommendations on how to best do this? This video highlights that I definately shouldn’t put a foundationless frame between two foundation frames.
So am I best to put 4 foundation frames in the middle and foundationless on outside perhaps?
Also do you think I should space them out evenly or as per the Bee Space Video, push them all together in the center?
