hello, im brand new to beekeeping and will be getting 3 packages of russians soon. i had bought all of my equiment used from a friend. most of the frames are drawn out on standard foundation. some looks ok and some looks like a bit messy and the age is unknown to me. my question is this.
When is comb no good anymore?
Is it ok to hive my packages on this comb and will they clean any mess up?
Could i use foundationless frames along w/ the drawn comb and undrawn foundation, and if so what would the best way to go about it be?
thanks a bunch for all of your wisdom!!
