I ran a bead of Bees wax along each bar as a guide
The bees built comes well, lower part of picture, and then I added 1/2 suppers , here is a picture after 1 week after adding them, not quite what I want but we will see.
I have two hives and will use no insulation, just the 3/4" wood the hives are made from.
