Looks good to me. Feed it back to the bees provided the hive it came from was free of disease.

Any solution to saving comb with hard as a brick pollen untouched for years? I started doing through inventory preparing for winter and I have about 6 frames of old honey with some pollen /bee bread. I think these frames were my "go to" frames for filling the outside of a deep for winter and they never touch them.
The honey is really thick,but not crystallized. Thinking of putting them as lowest deep and scratching cappings like some suggest. Would spritzing pollen with water make it useful ? J

Thanks for responding Michael. I was not sure if the bees ate it or removed it. My experience with robbed out hives is that they take everything, so I assumed it was being reused as food. Of course, none of the pollen in my hives is very old, one to two years at most.
