I had three hives that came out of winter with very bad dysentery. One hive died in late winter and the other was flying and seemed to be the strongest but crashed hard in March. There was a mountain of recently dead bees in that hive when I cleaned them out. It went into winter with zero mites in an alcohol wash. Anyway, they all seemed to have struggled with Nosema the one that survived is a shadow of what it was last year. My question is what to do with the comb. I figure I should melt it into candles. Should I get rid of the frames too? It seems like such a waste to lose the whole hive as well as the bees.
