I have a couple hives that didn't survive the winter. Of course I left the hives out thru all the rain we got.:doh: Well today I was collecting up all the dead hives. There's frames with honey but there's mildew or mold growing on them, it's furry or hairy. There's also some growing on empty drawn frames. Can I just dump those in strong hives and let them clean it up? Or can I use them on my new splits?
I thought the bees would come in and rob them, but they really haven't paid much attention to them.


Thanks
John

Don't Worry about mold. every book on beekeeping has a few paragraphs on the subject. and every one says the same thing the bees will clean it up. Just on our part if its a healthy hive and we have mold or mildew then ventalation needs to be adressed.
