Steve Mattera created the topic: Question regarding mice overwintering and discolored frames
1. I have some honey super frames that were stored for one year, from an old hive. In a number of them, there are some spots at the bottom of some of the cells that looks like a mold or mildew. Can they be re-used without having to worry about the unknown discoloring affecting the honey or the bees?
2. I had mice in one of my hives and they have just vacated. There is little damage other than a mess of hair and feces. How best to rid of both from the brood frames? Anything I should consider doing before introducing a new queen?
