    Re: Beginner questions on frames

    check your prices good
    I have found at the same supplier you can get the same things ( ala cart ) cheaper than kit prices .
    don't waste your money on grade A boxes if cheaper is offered.

    Re: how to kill hive of bees

    shake them out, the laying worker should be too heavy to fly back.
    scrape the top off the drone cells and use the comb.
    wont be long before they kick the drones out anyway.

    chances are you are not queen right.
    with that many cells.
    if you are ,actually find the old queen.
    and do a split taking the old queen and a couple of frames out (honey and brood)to a new box....
