Hello,
Is there any use of what remains after melting frames ? Specially if the frames where from brood chamber leaves to much material.

You could try making some fire starters - handy if you have wood heating - or some could be added to your swarm traps to enhance the appeal to the bees.

Slum gum is great at attracting all kinds of insect larvae including SHB. Grow your own fishing bait?

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

If you have chickens, it's a treat for them.

You talking about the wood or the black crap?
Wood you keep and reuse. 
The black crap you burn or throw in garbage bag.
most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
