FN-304, Drone Comb

In stock

100% pure unreinforced beeswax foundation. For the best results use a wedged top bar and split bottom bar. Must be reinforced with cross wiring. Beeswax is fragile in hot and cold temperatures. All beeswax foundation ships at the customers own risk for damage.

Larger cell pattern (7.1 mm) encouraging the bees to build drone comb. As part of your Integrated Pest Management program for varroa mites, insert one drone frame into each hive. When the bees have capped the cells, place the frame in a plastic bag in the freezer overnight. Remove the frame from the freezer and let it warm to room temperature. Drag your capping scratcher across the cells, breaking them open, then place the frame back in the hive for the worker bees to clean out the dead drones and mites. Repeat the cycle as the bees refill and cap the cells.
