    Check the empty cells on the brood frames. Do you see what looks like some white flecks scattered around on the cell walls?[/QUOTE]. Didn’t see anything like that. I will look again

    Re: Bee's Gone

    Alcohol wash. And I don’t use chemicals for mites. Done a lot of washes and there weren’t a lot. What would you do with the comb with pollen in it? Does it spoil?
