Hive Inspection 20160602
Well, an unhappy second inspection at week four after package installation. Multiple issues encountered. I’ll keep each of these issues in a separate thread for easier future reference and to make it easier for helpful advice givers to respond.
Mold on inside of inside cover.
Used top feeder starting at week one.
I imagine it was the combo of the top feeder and that I covered the hole in the cover with a tile rather than hardware cloth.
Use hardware cloth instead, yes?
But now how do I remediate?
Simply let the cover dry out in place or do I need to bleach it before reusing?
Moreover, what do I use to treat the mold that won’t harm the bees? Vinegar?
