I am using solid bottom boards with my hives this here. I generally let the bees keep anything that they have in their hive, I remove very little. I remove almost no propolis and very but comb for instance. I assume that the bees know what they need and want more than I do so I leave it alone. I also recognize that there is a significant ecosystem at work in the hive and assume that the more you disturb it the more you violate the balances that are necessary for success. So my question is too experienced beekeepers that you solid bottom boards. Do you remove the debris that gets trapped by the solid bottom board or do you let it stay there for the bees to take care of. If you remove it how often do you do so?
Thank you in advance for your comments.
