Hi... I had a few hives die out... and the hives had mold in then/on the frames. I have attached some pictures. I am trying to figure out what to do with this equipment... I hate to lose the equipment/drawn comb. Any ideas what to do with it?/ suggestions?

Thanks, DJ

thanks!! you don't worry about the mold effecting the bees health? getting into honey, etc.? I guess I would probably use in brood boxes only and not honey?

Thanks again!

DJ

read a few books on beekeeping, Like Ross Conrads Natural Beekeeping and you will get insite Mold to bees is not offensive as it is to us humans.

Yep...just like they said, the bees will clean it right up. Go ahead and re-use them.
