I have a set of brood and super boxes with some old sheets of foundation, that I have been draging around for a couple of years. How much pains do I still need to take to treat for foul brood, mites.... etc? I need to paint and put some of the foundation in the frames and wonder if I should buy brand new, or use foundation I've drug around for years? I'm in Colorado, moving to Tennessee in May. I will miss Tom Theobald's weekly articles in Fencepost Mag. on bees. Get it if you live in the area.
