When I'm trying to bring the bees down and get them off the empty frames, do i shake them off? How do I get them off the frames? I know its a stupid question, I just don't want to hurt them.
Also, since I have been using a hive top feeder (I will switch to a block), I have a sugar ant problem. Is this a problem for the bees? They are climbing up nd down the whole hive....yuck.
