    Re: Advice on adding 2nd deep

    Re: Mouse poop on honey supers

    If you see droppings, you can be sure there is mouse urine also on the combs. Save the honey for your next bee colonies, IMO it is garbage for human consumption.

    Re: Treating EFB infected frames with heat

    If you 100% sure it is EFB you can treat it with heat, but you need 70º C and up for at least 1 hour. Only a lab test can tell you 100% it is EFB or not.
