Wax small cell foundation is available with wire with hooks or no wire. 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. Most bees will need to be introduced to this foundation gradually. For the best results use a wedged top bar and split bottom bar.
