Hello

How or should I be concerned about cleaning my solid bottom board hive board?

I have two hives one with a solid bottom board and one with an IPK screened bottom board with a removable tray which makes cleaning easy.

Just wondering if I need to address cleaning the solid bottom bottom board?

As always, thank you for your advice:}

I always remove the brood boxes and scrape the bottom board clean each year. I do it to both the solid and screened boards (and screened bottom board slide).

I do a thorough cleaning when I reverse brood chambers in the spring, any tile I do a thorough hive check I set the brood box on the cover and sweep it off with my bee brush. after I look it over for SHB larva and such.
