    Hi Susan-
    Thank you for the follow up.
    The boxes are all large Langstroth DEEPs. They are on a metal four legged stand with a wooden bottom and a scree. The wooden roof is cover with copper angled to keep water from pooling… This is a large Hive.

    I did not catch these bees- I purchased 1 Italian Nuc with a VSH resitant queen. These bees may have been displaced by other type of honey bee. I am not sure. And Susan has a very good point- I am looking for an experienced bee keeper to remove the bees and take them to a caring home.

    In case its not clear I am looking for someone who is experienced and has time to work with them.

    Thank you for the follow up.

    Regards Fred

    Hi- The bees were purchased. They are VSH bees, Italian. I live on west side of LA. I don’t have a mentor. My bottom board is not sticky. Just plain white. Do I leave it in all the time?

    New advice needed:
    On the bottom of my hive I have a screen and a white plastic inspection board. During the hot weather should I leave the board out to help the hive ventilate? Or always keep it in.

    I would need to leave it in some period of time to capture the droppings for inspection.

    Thanks for any advice
    Fred
