No hive inspections at this time of the year, the main job is cleaning all the equipment for the spring.  So far I have cleaned and scorched all my free shallow and deep boxes, about 30 or 40 frames with comb have been melted down and now await boiling in washing soda, the wax needs further cleaning before I trade it in for new foundation.  Crown boards and snelgrove boards have been cleaned and scorched.  Queen excluders have had a scrape and await further cleaning.

I have also found time to make this. More on this next year.20141021_210924
