I am a little confused here about what to do with the flow frames when treating for Varroa.
Whether with Apistan or Bayvarol neither suggest keeping traditional frames on as honey is then not fit for consumption.
Logical step is then to take the frames off I would assume or is it any different being fully plastic frames?
If so is it best to keep them in the freezer
New hive and bees have only just partially filled the gaps with wax and yet to fill any cells with nectar/honey.
Any help here would be appreciated. It is autum here in New Zealand and really time to be treating. I know I am probably going to have to feed them over winter now.
