    Do you have a top entrance near the super that that comb came out of?

    It could be brood comb or the bees may have walked over the comb with dirty legs and left the dirt behind on the wax. I...

    Re: BetterComb Experience, Anyone?

    I would also send the pictures of them to betterbee. If they know they have a potential problem they are more likely to fix it then if they do not know about it.

    not in my apairy, but I found out I could get my garage freezer to -30F freezing frames. I removed an air duct to fit a box in, and apparently it really messed up the control of the freezer.

    Re: Cleaning extracted frames

    I do similar to Tim, but I place one super at a time out with a full sheet baking pan under it. The baking pan catches all of the wax that the bees remove.

    If you do this make sure the supers...
  16. Re: not prepared / first cut-out, what can increase my chances?

    A few thoughts,

    Did you flip the comb usidown when you rubber banded it into the frames? It sort of looks like this, and that will not work because the bees build it at an angle to keep the honey...

  22. Re: Fall hive inspections - what should I be looking for?
