This is the thinnest foundation available and is used for producing comb honey in either the Ross Round system or by using a standard frame and a comb cutter. For the best results use a wedged top bar and grooved bottom bar. Support pins can be used for extra stability. See page 26 for support pins.

Small Cell Foundation
Some believe that the 4.9 mm cell impedes the Varroa Mite’s ability to reproduce and that it helps to breed a more mite resistant bee. Scientifically, these claims have yet to be confirmed. Let us know how it works for you! Most bees will need to be introduced to this foundation gradually. For the best results use a wedged top bar and split bottom bar. See page 26 for support pins and wire.
