Cleaning Old Frames | Boo Bee Honey

After last weekend’s cleaning spree, I collected quite a few frames filled with old dark comb. Comb gets darker and darker the more it’s used. Many beekeepers will replace brood frames year after year because it’s believed to be unhealthy for the bees to raise their young in old comb. For me, cleaning old frames is threefold:It’s healthier for the bees,It saves me money by allowing me to reuse old frames, andI can harvest and process the wax for balms and soaps and lotions, etc.
