    Default Is Crumby Comb Normal?

    My hive died in November and I've gotten new bees. I'm wondering if you would look at these photos and tell me if these look normal?

    I want to know if I can put them in my new hive without hurting my bees, or if the whole thing (hive and frames) need to be burned?

    Thanks for looking,
    Laura

    It's just honey comb that has been emptied of honey but has crystallized honey residue on it. The only reason to ever burn equipment is when you have AFB.
