I am attempting to swarm trap, and in my research I have discovered that old brood comb increases your chance of success. I wish to purchase decent* brood comb from a cutout or removed from a frame (my plan is to cut the brood comb into approximate 2”X 2” pieces so I do not need the frame).
I look forward to your responses, and thank you.
*Decent – I’m not an expert here, but I plan to first freeze any comb I would get, which I believe would take care of any wax moths (as long as the comb isn’t completely webbed). But if the hive died because of disease (particularly AFB) or is slimed by small hive beetle, I would not consider that ‘decent’.
