    Default Why does this freshly drawn comb already look dirty?

    So I added a frame to two hives and am glad to see the bees are making good progress drawing out the comb. This is after about a week since installing in the brood box. However, I don't know why the comb already looks dirty? Any thoughts? I know I need to add some fishing line for support.

    ir depends on what they are using to build the comb, if you have a strong flow you get nice white comb, otherwise they use what they have and it appears a little dingy. it is fine. btw not sure about the bottom bar attachment to the sidebar i would worry that will pull apart your first spring inspection...
