Hi everyone, Well, I need some suggestions. My weak hive I have had sitting and waiting to use for ordered queens has been good until I finally have carnies coming to me out of Ca. Just my luck that hive was clean a week ago. I paid for new queens, and I see my first SHB. one frame with uncapped honey had some larva in it so I removed it and put it in the freezer. What I see as the serious issue is the fact that hive has 3 plastic frames in it. I see the beetles hide in the crevices of those plastic frames. I also can see the bees will take care of them if I can close up those crevices. I was thinking tape, anyone have better suggestions then tape? Because I did watch my bees attack the beetles which are rather fast. My new queens come a week from tomorrow, and I plan to get my hives ready for them on Sunday. Is there any way I can clean these frames by then? I made a plastic CD case trap for them I put in Crisco with borax and powdered sugar basically all I had around the house. I also tore that hive down cleaned the bottom screen board and under it and put borax under the hive, I also put the last two plastic frames on the outside of the drawn frames because they had brood. I want to freeze those frames too, but that hive is only 6 and a half frames filled, they are the lazy hippies who do not build comb. don’t ask me how they are still alive because I do not know. My other two hives are fine with capped honey I went through them too. I do have the area of that apiary covered with a tarp which I will removed when I get home today.
