What are the benefits/problems with freezing frames? I was going to
shake the bees (and the laying worker) today and hive the a new
package tomorrow but the rain and wind has delayed that a bit. I hope
to shake tomorrow and may hive the package at the same time. I
thought about at least uncapping all of the drone brood.
