Mould

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I opened up the hives today and things are ticking along ok. But I noticed there is quite a bit of mould on the quieter frames, appears to be old pollen stores. I'm assuming due to all the rain we've had?

Is the mould a problem I should do something about or will the bees clean this up when things get busier in the spring?

Sometimes they need something to do in spring to stop them from swarming, it doesn't hurt to give them a bit of work.

True that, I prefer to load them up with a mix of undrawn and drawn frame...
