Just a quick update, bees are doing very well, all my two box hives are needing another box each so I'm working on frames (already have the boxs ready). Number One still has chalk brood problems, I'm going to try an odd remedy Anita told me about, it seems to already be working on the other hive I have with chalk brood problems. You peel a banana and place the peel under the lid inside the hive on top of the frames, then you eat the banana, very strange but it does indeed seem to work. Number one will be a good test since they have had trouble ever since I put them in this hive, I remember giving them an old comb, I think this was the vector. Comb is best kept to a hive and not traded around unless the mother hive is free of problems.
