Product Description 

The waxed cousin of our original green drone comb frame. Developed with Jeff Pettis under a USDA Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement, the green drone comb frames were introduced as a non-chemical form for (IPM) to fight varroa mites.  Colonies instinctively build green drone frames comb to maintain a healthy hive.  Rotate frames in and out to manage varroa mite levels.  The bright green color makes it easy to identify drone frames. Simply remove the drone frames, scrape clean or freeze them to kill and eliminate parasitic mites, and replace them randomly.  Another Pierco innovation in beekeeping equipment & technology.
