Tonight’s Bee School

  • Once we have enough drawn cone to store until next year we must be careful how we store our boxes and frames of drawn cone.  Learned about a new technique tonight.  Wax moths like to hide in the dark parts of the drawn cone.  Use a moth crystal drawer for every 5 supers.  Place 3 ounces of mothball crystals in the drawers.  Must check this drawer from time to time.  Let frames air out for a week before you reuse. Click this link to see moth crystal drawer and chemical you can order to place in drawer to stop wax moths.                                                             MOTH CRYSTAL DRAWER 
  • The rest of the night we are going over many bullet points to prepare for the test.  I will insert these into the blog later by scanning in the documents…will save this old boy a lot of typing!
