Had a dead out last fall, or at least I guess that is what it is called. Last fall I had 2 hives that swarmed on me late season. 1 found a miracle drone somewhere out there, and the other didn't make it. These frames are from that box. A few of the frames are heavy with pollen. They got pulled out of the yard around November, and stored in shed. The pollen looks glossy??
I am picking up 2 packages Tuesday and wondered it they would be ok.
