If you want to super your hive with a modified hive body in order to increase honey production or capture a particular honey flow, we recommend using 7-frame spacers, using wax foundation in the frames, and then extracting those frames. That process leaves you with frames with drawn combs that can be used again in subsequent years. But if you wish to harvest the honey from your supers by simple “crush and strain” method using the honey strainer/bottler, it’s not desirable to have the wired wax foundation in your frames because it will get ruined and it’s difficult to deal with the wires. This plastic foundation is wax-coated and very strong. When you harvest, simply use a plastic putty knife to scrape everything off of it and into the strainer bucket. Then place the super back onto the hive for 24 hours so that the bees can clean everything up for you before you put it away in storage.
