Opened my formerly strongest hive today an the hive was slimed by hundreds of hive beetle larva. Turns out this hive, like my other, swarmed and failed to re-queen itself. So, a couple of questions.
1, 3 medium supers full of larva but 1/2 full of honey are now in my freezer. Is it ok to put them back on the hive after a week in the freezer?
2. I am re-queening the hives using the frame of brood a week method found on Michael Bush's page. Can one healthy hive afford to lose 6 frames of brood over 3 weeks? It is a very healthy hive.
