Better comb update with pictures
« on: July 24, 2020, 06:01:16 PM »
Well heres some pictures of the Better Bee Better comb my brother installed in his hive.  The frame pictured with the most useage has been in the hive about a month the other frame they are just begining to use has been in about a week.  Some brood but seems to be mostly honey storage.

Looks like your red boody queen on 3rd pic at the bottom of the frame.

Is this how the foundation comes or did they build it out a little?

The better comb comes out of the package looking just like fully drawn out comb thats the size of the frame.  Then used tooth picks through holes in the side of the frame to hold it in.  The bees fixed rhe spots that got damaged when it was put in the frames and filled in any gaps around the edges.  They may have worked the cells out a bit but not much.
The better comb doesnt use a foundation it is all wax.  Next time I am over there I will try to remember to get a picture of a section that isnt in a frame yet.
And good eye on seeing the queen we missed her when he went through the frames.
