September 2017 Presentation

Rebekah Golden gave us a very informative presentation on foundationless beekeeping. Most common to top-bar or Warré hives, you can even go foundationless in Langstroth hives.

Here are some helpful tips for reattaching broken or crazy comb in a Langstroth hive. Photos courtesy Susan Rudnicki.

1. Broken or cross comb removed from frame.

2. Frame placed upside-down in holding fixture.

3. Comb placed upside-down in frame against “top” bar, and inside rubber bands.

4. Zip-ties used to secure comb in place to keep it pinned against top bar.

5. More zip-ties.

6. Trim tails off zip-ties.

7. All done and ready to be returned to the hive.
