So ?'s 1. Do I have to completely remove all the dead bees from the comb? I have slammed them down ( to the point the comb fell out of 1 ), brushed them and it seems the only way to get all those small bodies out is 1 at a time, ( which made me wonder why there where so many young bees in my dead outs ) 2. What is the best way to fix the comb that is built outside the frame or was comb from the cut out that is skewed? 3. I have frames that are in all stages of being drawn from 100% on both sides to 50% on one side and just started on the other side. What and when will these frames be best used ? ( I have 4 packages coming in a few weeks and my nuc needs more room so if the weather stays good I will move them to a ten frame this weekend) 4. There are frames that have capped and almost capped tombs what if any thing do these need ( would hate to put these in with a package only to have a worker bee go running to the queen:queen: : I can already see it with my luck.. Your highness we have found the remains of an ancient culture up on sector 7, and according to the Beegeva council we will have to report and document every thing before we can clear it out,:rules: that is only after we have it inspected and everything approved and in triplicate. So then they have to decide either stay and clear it out in the cover of darkness,:wave: go thru all the red tape:write:, or just decide it's not worth the effort and bail.
