Re: Would you use used drawn out frames?
Once you use them they will stay in your hives for the normal life span of a frame of comb, unless rotating them out is your goal and you can resist their continued use. Once you have used them and gotten your bees well on their way why would you rotate them out? If they serve their purpose they will probably continue to do so relatively ad infinitum.
