Re: Should I trim frames that have excessively thick comb?
I trim empty comb when I do this but save the trimming on honey comb for harvest time...as you mentioned. For me, this typically occurs as propolis builds up between the frames, gradually forcing them apart until the spacing is all wrong. Sometimes, it get's so weird that I need to start all over but I usually harvest and then clean up the frames after the bee's have taken the last of the honey. Part of the cleanup is scraping the excess propolis and wax off so that the spacing is OK again.
