Who told you that ? All other things being equal, bees absolutely love dark comb - the older and the stinkier (is that a word ?), the better. That's why old, smelly comb is ideal for use in bait traps ... because it's what the bees actually prefer.I'm told that the queen does not like to go on the dark wax on a foundation.
Respectfully, I would keep the comb and throw away the adviser....I'm told that the queen does not like to go on the dark wax on a foundation. Do I remove the wax and toss it, and keep the foundation. Do I throw the frame away and replace. If I keep the foundation, how to I clean it so the Queen will use it.
