Sequentially the frame is removed from the frame and each of its bars is carefully cleaned. The cleaned frame is placed in the clean part of the hive.

Contaminated with the diarrhea of ​​the body of old beehives after cleaning are burned with a blowtorch or a lighted bundle of straw. In the absence of formalin, many beekeepers confine themselves to washing with liquor and burning beehives inside.

Cleaning and sweeping of donjes in hives should be made several times in the summer. In addition, when inspecting the hives, it is necessary, as necessary, to scrape the upper slats of the frames and to scrape off the waxen labels and propolis accumulated on the tires.
