  1. i have a hive that has nosema, i have treated it and they are now fine, but can the frames in it be used again next year in the spring time for splits.

    • Hi Carl, yes, you can reuse the frames in splits or any other hive. Nosema is a common disease that is usually seasonal and if treated, as you have found, the bees will often recover. Only if your colony had a severe case and it died would we suggest you treat the frames.

      • Some beekeepers use phostoxin to fumigate comes to rid them of spores. I have also heard that using a bleach solution can help remove spores.
