I have one hive and it did not winter well. I've been supplying it with sugar syrup and treating with Terramycin/powdered sugar dusting but it is not yet a strong, thriving hive. In two weeks, I'll be moving 10 more hives to the same farm. Would it do any good to separate the week hive from the new hives by a few hundred feet? What should I do with the frames in the weak hive that have discolored, brown wax? I was thinking of removing the frames, scraping off the brown wax, washing with mild detergent, and spraying them down with a diluted bleach solution before returning them to the hive. The frames are made of a black plastic, not woodâ€¦ thought this could make a difference in how I handle the situation.
