Hello, from California
« on: March 24, 2017, 01:41:15 AM »
 :embarassed:  Northern CA here, I've been keeping bees for going on 5 yrs and have never joined a forum - always asked my questions at my beekeepers meeting, but they only meet once a month and I have more questions that that!   :tongue:  My latest is how do I best clean used frames and switch from using foundation to frameless?

Maybe you mean foundationless?  You just need to put in a comb guide.

If you go foundationless . I personally believe you're so much better off with about inch and a half start Foundation strips.
You need to make sure the hir this level . When the bees are drawing out comb.
