Large Cell (7.1 mm) Medium Brood Drone Foundation (21.59 cm x 42.55 cm) - 20 lbs./approx 140 Sheets:
Drone foundation has been primarily used by queen breeders to produce large numbers of drones in the mating yard. With the destruction caused by the Varroa Mite, came the realization that mites favored the drone brood because of the longer gestation period. As a method of control, one drone frame is placed in the brood nest. Once the drone brood is capped, the frame is frozen then the brood is removed, usually by scratching the cells open with the capping scratcher.
Use with 9 5/8" (24.45 cm) hive bodies and 9 1/8" (23.18 cm) frames.
Beeswax is fragile in hot and cold temperatures, all beeswax foundation ships at the customers own risk for damage.
