Now they haven't built hardly any comb since then. So, my question is if the bottom brood box has 6 frames built out 100%...

    I have heard bits and pieces on beesource and on some older bee videos by brushy mountain about comb treatments. They supposedly let you put comb in swarm boxes etc. without the wax moths eating them. What are these treatments and where can I get them? Are they safe for the bees? Thanks Kingfisher
