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.
The foundation is too long and bows out when placed in the frame. I'm going to have to cut all 175 to fit the frames. Many of the foundation breaks along the wire lines with even gentle handling. I'll be looking for another brand next time.
