Hi all. I fully planned on cleaning out the bottom board to all of my hives this weekend, but didn't have time for more than a health/honey weight check on my hives. Then I got to thinking... should I be cleaning out the bottom board at all? I was wondering what you all do. I am hoping to go the road of treatment free but not sure if it will be possible based on all the commercial bees brought into my area. I am still going to give it a try though. In either case, would cleaning out the bottom board be ridding my hives of all that delicious microbial environment? Please let me know what you do.
