Can I take the capped honey frames from a dead hive and give to a live hive?
One of my dead hives perished in the autumn. A suspected pathogen is deformed wing virus.

Do I risk transferring this pathogen? Anything else to be aware of?

Thanks,
michael

Some of my winter dead outs have mold growing on the wood, esp the bottom boards. Is it ok the spray with a little bleach water or should i leave them be? Thanks!

I just did that. If you add an extra deep on top I would alternate empty comb, frame of honey, empty comb, frame of honey...
