    Re: Found old boxes.

    Peter: Thanks for the detailed reply, sounds like a plan. After getting in there, I knew the frames and probably supers are done. I'm going to buy a smoker and a deep with frames for the next...

    Re: Found old boxes.

    I didn't have any problems with the bees, but the boxes are full of comb going every witch way. They were defiantly there but not overflowing the top super like I was expecting. The one frame I...

    Re: Found old boxes.

    Re: Found old boxes.
