    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: Modified Hive

    Does anyone on here have a viewing window on the side of thier hive? I sort of suspect that the bees would cover the camera with burr comb if you leave enough space in front of it to get a picture...

    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.

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    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.

    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...
  21. Re: not prepared / first cut-out, what can increase my chances?

    A few thoughts,
