That makes me sick.
Sorry about the lame dad’s joke… just couldn’t let it go.
Shame about the frames. I am very keen to hear the outcome on this one.
Please keep us posted if you are able to source some others from someone else.
That makes me sick.
oh dear, that definitely deserves any joke. Thrown out**
@Semaphore aren’t you in South Australia? Did you give frames to someone in Sydney (NSW)???
…I could be wrong though…
I’m a friend of people at the urban beehive. I looked at the frames and photographed them when I was visiting the store- they were handed in from someone else. it’s a long, convoluted story… The folks there didn’t have time or space to deal with them and they were sent to be recycled.
Ahhh, ok. That makes a bit more sense. Pity, because I was keen to know the outcome. Oh well.
Just found this discussion, very interesting & helpful to keep an eye out for as an early adopter.
@Doug1 i believe leaves his Fsupers out for cleanup, can’t recall if he resets or leaves them in open position? (his hives being inside a beehouse prob helps avoid a robbing frenzy)
I might have missed some details as I read a little fast hoping to hear the exciting conclusion - did the OP check there wasn’t an empty brood arc in the frames, and/or a honey leak?
I have a number of badly candied frames. Durban South Africa.
Is it feasible to try cleaning them in a dishwasher?
There are a number of threads on how to deal with candied honey - while I think you probably could wash them, I don’t think you have to abandon hope of getting the honey out.
Gently heating the frames in a solar heater or barely warm oven and then extracting may be an option.
I think I remember someone putting the whole super in a black plastic bag out in the sun and then extracting.
Hello and welcome to the Flow forum!
Only if you want to buy a new dishwasher… One of our quieter members, @busso, tried cleaning his in the dishwasher. It resulted in wax coating the interior and causing big problems. His wife was not amused. I think he spent many hours cleaning it up.
For simplicity, you could try soaking them in a tub of hot water - no hotter than 70°C, to avoid damaging the plastic.
