Bear saliva on my foundation

728 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Plaasjapi
A bear attacked my hive and licked the foundation on my frames clean, but left the frames intact, so I dusted them off and put them back in the hive with nuc bees and queen, but after 3 months the bees have not drawn comb on those frames. Are bees that picky about their foundation. What should I do with these perfectly good frames/foundation to make it more attractive for the bees?
