Hi, new keeper awaiting April for first set of bees.  I bought my hives second-hand from someone close by and dependable.  Before I realized the complexities of the hive last November, I filled in some defects within the chamber with wood filler ( looks, smells and feels like wood but is actually a combination of chemicals - commonly bought at Home Depot etc).  Is this going to be problem for the bee? Should I dig it out?
Thanks, Jester

I wouldn't worry about it.  The bees will propolize it and seal it off.
