  1. I’ve noticed on a couple of hives that where there’s been a plastic frame beside a wooden frame the bees have drawn from the foundation wooden frame to right inside the cavity of the plastic frame. They seem to rather draw out the wooden ones much more than plastic! I’m thinking of going all wooden frames now, any experiences or views on this?
  2. What do you do with manky, soured, moldy frames? Share your experience, please! For example, in Ukraine we do it next way. What to do with manky frames? What to do if honey is soured in frames? What to do with moldy frames? We will try to answer these questions. Here are the frames from the weak colonies, which were manky. These colonies remained alive, but they are very weak. They survived because there was an early flight this year. If the bees made a flight later, these colonies could die. These colonies were crapped because they were weak and ate more and overloaded their in
  3. How do you keep frames with empty combs? How to save the frame from the wax moth? In Ukraine we do it like that Here is how we keep frames with empty combs. This method is environmentally friendly, does not require a lot of money and safe for bees and people. This method helps to kick away the wax moth and other pests. In most cases mice do not touch the frame with this substance. As fast as possible after extraction we need to sprinkle frames with empty combs with ASH. Yes we use ash, wood ash from a stove or a bonfire or ash from straw. You need to sprinkle frames with empty combs with
  4. Has anyone had any experience with heating plastic frames? I'm interested to know how hot you can heat them before they will start to deform? Also do they only deform if they are not well supported? @Trevor Gillbanks I know you mentioned in your solar melter video that the plastic frames couldn't survive the temperatures you were achieving - but you also mentioned you were getting over 100 degC. What I'm interested to know is, if you could regulate the temperature to < 70 degC and the frame was well supported could you melt the wax without ruining the frames?
