Re: Hive Post Mortem
If you have a dry basement, cover that box with wood over and under. Store it with the comb for next year. Put the other emptys on top for weight to hold it down tight. I put mine in the darkest corner of my basement, never had a problem yet. Then when your new packages arrive, 1 will have a head start. And don't worry the bees will clean it out and polish it up and the queen will start laying. Glad to see that You are not letting it get you down.
