No Asmbl 2 Green Drone Beehive Deep 1-Pce Waxed Plastic Frames & Foundations


Green Color The green frames have larger cells so the bees can make drones. You can add up 2 or 4 drone frames in the brood boxes (bottom boxes) in the #2 or #3 frames positions. Then every two weeks you will pull out each drone frame (alternate 1 frame every 2 weeks) and destroy most of the capped drone brood by cutting the cells completely out of the plastic comb, freezing the comb overnight to kill the varroa mites and returning the thawed comb into the hive so the bees can recycle the wax. You do this in the spring ans summer to kill and reduce the varroa mite population. It is a natural way to control varroa.
