I am looking at trying a super of Ross Rounds this year. I am would like any information/experiences on how well the bees fill them out, how well does the finished product sell etc.. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
They are a bit difficult. First off you want a fast strong honey flow. When I say strong, really strong. That way the combs are filled quickly without lots of foot traffic on them. Second, needs to be a STRONG hive with bees of correct foraging age. Third, bees really don't like the ross rounds, or other comb specific kind of boxes.
BUT yes it can be done. Really depends on the year and the hive. Also there are some books on it, that will be worth the read.
