8 1/2" X 16 3/4" Large Cell (7.1 mm) Medium Brood Drone Foundation

Drone Foundation has been primarily used by queen breeders to produce large numbers of drones in the mating yard. With the destruction caused by the Varroa Mite came the realization that the mites favored the drone brood because of the longer gestation period. As a method of control, one drone frame is placed in the brood nest. Once the drone brood is capped, the frame is frozed. Then the brood is removed, usually by scratching the cells open with an uncapping scratcher. For the best results use a wedged top bar and split bottom bar.
