    Re: What to do with frames?

    I do have SHBs, but usually pretty well controlled in my other 3 hives. I did see a couple of little white worms crawling out of some cells in the dead hive

    Thanks Libhart. I had actually thought about doing what you described, but couldn't find a label that would work. Can you tell me which label from onlinelables you used for your bee club? Thanks!

    Blank labels?

    I had a graphic artist design a .pdf honey label for me, using the 3 x 1.75 medium oval format that virtually all bee suppliers provide. Would like to print my own using a laser printer, but can't...
