Our wax is 100 percent pure beeswax, molded to fit perfectly into each individual frame. This foundation is embossed with 5.6mm cells that are slightly larger than standard, but not large enough to be considered drone foundation (6.4 mm) by the queen. This will be unusual to the queen and she will prefer not to lay eggs in it, which is one method of producing comb honey without the use of a queen excluder. However, if this foundation is left on the hives over the winter, the bees will have time to rework it into drone foundation. So be sure to remove all 7/11 foundation from the hive before winter!
