A buddy of mine did some work at a ladies farm this weekend. He saw a bunch of hives in her barn and asked her about them. According to her they were her late husband’s who had been dead a few years. She said a few years before he died mites killed his bees and he just gave up and they had been stored there since. Then asked if he wanted them.
Would you think they’re safe since it was mites and it’s been so long?
If you were to take them what would you do to them before using them?
