It's not moths or beetles, was defiantly bee built whatever it was, from researching it appears it may have been drone comb. I emailed the person who sold me the bees and he said it sounds like they are queen less and he will give me a new 3 lb package in the spring but its too late in the year to requeen and they would have time to build up. The major clue in was the lack of building, which without a queen would make sense cause as the brood that was there hatched they were just replacing it with honey. So I guess I'm just going to leave them till later fall and check then, maybe somehow they will pull through but I don't think my poking around in there will do any good. From what the local beekeeper said sounds like they are to be written off and start over in the spring. I am bummed, this is the second hive loss I have had since is started beekeeping (last one absconded while I was on vacation 3 years ago).
So here's a question, when fall comes if they haven't miraculously pulled through, hatched a queen and built up, what do I do with these frames of honey to keep them usable tip spring so the new package an use them? Juts leave them in the hive?
