    Requeen may be a way
    Other ways are
    1- you can make a package bee with yours bees, and install in a new hive, the honey can be extracted for human comsuption, the frames with pollen can´t be used in other hives, all material have to be cleaned with a solution of amonion cuaternarium
    2- Only feed with pollen cakes =Powder Pollen + powder sugar + canola oil + fructose, 250 grms to times per week.

    Screen bottoms help. Chalk is a fungus, and it likes a damp atmosphere. When I first had bees, I was finding a little chalk. It vanished as soon as I gave the colony a mesh floor.
