Built combs

Revision as of 15:57, 2 November 2016 by Linn.groeneveld (Talk | contribs)

Built combs are frames with wax cells already fully built by bees. Beekeepers can save the built combs after harvesting the honey from them and use them during the expansion of a hive in the next year. One has to be aware that it is possible to spread diseases through the introduction of built combs.
