Re: Annual Comb Replacement
Every 7 years? There are people that actually throw away sound brood combs because they have reached the ripe old age of 7? I throw a lot of frames each year but they have to give me a better excuse than age. Hey, it's hard finding them when they aren't full of brood or honey or even pollen. I would estimate 20% of my brood combs are more than 50 years old.
My take on what Jerry may be telling us is saying is what's the point, it's largely out of our control. Your hives are inhabited by a bunch of flying environmental dust mops.
