Morning Bee Peeps!
I’m just curious about the cedar wood as I’m considering another hive. Last years novice experience with the “other wood” brought on fraught with hive beetles and the wax moth. If the cedar repels the wax moth as it does in my closet then I may purchase some cedar brood boxes and another flow hive. I’m just throwing this out there to y’all because my first year was bee drama and the custodianship of my girls though the battle was hard fought we made it through the first year. One less insect to fight on behalf of the bees is what I’m looking for.
Will cedar strips in the hive repel the moth?
I live in Tennessee so it “feels like” the capital of the world with night flying insects.
I’m gearing up for another beetle fight with traps etc. I’m geared up for Veroa as well.
