I have an opportunity to pick up a lot of hives at a auction some new some old and some I would not use. Most the frames are plasticell and have no comb on them, might have been used one year and scraped off. What are the things to look for?
I brew a lot of beer (for my wife), would sanitizer work to clean hive and frames?
The learning curve is getting steeper the second year (or I'm getting dumber as I age) and I appreciate all of your help.
