I obtained a bunch of free hive equipment this weekend with the added bonus of one box filled with bees. So far I've frozen all the comb and power washed the mediums, lids, bases, etc. I will be torching and painting that stuff too. I did get some really, really old comb which I'm pretty sure I will need to trash and then other that looks fine so not sure what I'll do with those yet.
I thought it would be fun to post some of the funky comb and get your opinions on what you think some of this stuff is. I have my guesses but this is my first year and I've never seen this before. So please; what do these old combs tell you?
