    Honeycomb super

    I like all that it comes with, but the only problem I had was the foundation falls out in the heat.

    Pros and cons

    by Randall Muir on Apr 20th 2022

    This kit has things going for it, but also would be better if foundation installation guidance was included. I have no experience assembling 100% beeswax foundation into frames. The kit includes a booklet written by a master, but he goes into a bunch of wide ranging subjects like swarm prevention. He makes no mention of the details needed to get the wax foundation in the frames. The instructions that Mann Lake provided only tell you how to assemble the frames. That was kind of ridiculous since the kit comes with pre-assembled wooden frames. I had to go to YouTube to confirm you’re supposed to use your hive tool to snap the pre-cut wedge off the underside of the top bar first. Since the height of each wax panel is about a quarter inch more than the space from the very top of the top groove to the very bottom of the bottom groove, I was uncertain if the wax panel was oversized, or if I was supposed to trim it. Otherwise it would bow when installed. I ultimately figured out on my own to bend over about 1/4 of an inch of the top of the wax foundation as you were installing it and then put the wedge over top of that roughly 90° angle you created in the wax. This was the most important information to be included in assembly instructions, and it was nowhere to be found. Obviously a beekeeper experienced with installing 100% beeswax foundation would know why the wax is a little bit taller than the space and what to do. Now I have an installation strategy also, but I had to come about it the hard way.
