Dead moldy bee's in frame

1685 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Beeslave
I had a die out this spring. A couple of frames had a softball size area with dead bee's head first and a lot of mold around them. My question is, can I put this frame into a active hive to have them clean it up or should I just throw it away?

I typically gently brush the moldy dead bees off with my fingers and then I let the bees clean up the rest.
Brush off the bees that are stuck outside the cells and put the frame in a strong hive.
