  4. Re: are my mouse guard an issue I should address?

    Really depends on how many a bunch is. If I see more than I think a particular hive can undertake, I remove guard on a cold day and clear the entrance, then replace the guard. If it is not flying...
  5. Re: Will the bees clean these frames or should I toss the comb

    If they look the same as they do on the pictures (before freezing?), I would try to get/pick out as much of the webbing as possible without ripping out surrounding "good" foundation. I have come...

    Re: Bees have left the hive

    The frames are most likely full of honey and sugar syrup, color can be used as an indicator of the two. They are good for something! If you plan on starting again freeze them and reuse them in the...
  16. Re: Mouse invader/what to do with honey?

    Is there evidence that the mouse made it up into the two boxes of full honey? Were the honey supers separated by a queen excluder (in this case might act as a mouse excluder:D)? I don't know if it...
