eg:
you have 10 frames in the brood chamber
you take one out, and cut half of it out
because bees are in such need of drones (assuming you are using ordinary foundation) they will 100% fill that half with drone cells and queen is going to lay inside them.
when drone larvae developes mites infest the cells, mites are drawn to drone brood up to 10 times as to worker brood, that's why drone brood is bound to get high number of mites, after the drone brood is capped-the mites are trapped in, you cut it out and...feed it to chickens, or something..

Or heat up the wok.  Stir fried drone pupae is good especially if you use peanuts the Thai way.

Oh yeah. Blood, guts and gore is great. A little puke someplace..... forget it. And I can manage to change baby diapers, but a little poo out of place is terrible. Snot, spit, and just about any body excrement just gets to me.  And I can't stand needles. I would rather they slice me open with a butcher knife than draw blood with a needle. I think it is because I got those veins that move when they try to stick it.

Ever watched "fear factor"? I have to leave the room every time they go to eat that nasty stuff. Perhaps if I just really had to eat the bug to survive I could do it.
