The waxed cousin of our original drone frame. Developed together with Jeff Pettis under a USDA Accept as true with Fund Cooperative Agreement, the drone comb frame was once introduced as a non-chemical form for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to fight varroa mites. Colonies instinctively build drone comb to deal with a healthy hive. Rotate frames out and in to manage varroa mite levels. A bright green color makes it easy to identify drone frames. Simply get rid of the drone frames, scrape clean or freeze to kill and get rid of parasitic mites, and replace randomly. Any other Pierco innovation in beekeeping equipment & technology.
