So, what does one do with all of the drawn brood comb that uses the standard frames (purchased less than a year ago)? The easy answer is to replace it, but I'm cheap and I'd like to recycle them. Would I just pull the frames, scrape off the comb and pop the foundation out and replace with a starter strip?
Would it work well to take a utility knife to the frames and cut line, about an inch below but parallel to the top bar? That would leave a nice starter strip of previously drawn comb for the bees to begin redrawing. Thoughts?
