Hi everyone !
This winter in preparation for starting back into beekeeping I built n assembled three full setup of hives.
My problem is that some molding n moisture has discolored the frames of my hives I have stored in them. Will this be an issue. It mold doesn’t seem to appear on the actual plastic foundations yet.
Our region is very damp n rainy off/on most of our winters. This winter was exceptional so, Approximately 24 inches in last four months. This weather is thus cool but mild like England I would guess.
After this discovery the other day I have add screen bottom boards, and tried to add more ventilation !! I will add more photos …
My question is: “Will my new bees have a problem with this limited mold n mildew ?”
I am hoping this added opening n ventilation will help some to slow or stop the problem until my bees arrive in about one months time. Everything was so new, perfect n ready ! Bummer !
I will appreciate everyone n all thots n notes. Maybe this is common in mild winter wet regions. I don’t remember this issue as a teen years ago but maybe I just forgot.
Thanks everyone ,
