Black specs on frame

Unread post by Mfitzrad » April 9th, 2019, 5:39 am

Folks,

I was cleaning up a hive frame from last summer and I noticed black specs (see photo) inside the frame channel. Anyone have any idea what this is... want to make I don't a bigger issue on the horizon.

I can't tell either as the magnification is too small. Could just be hive debris, though, fallen down from cleaning out comb. Where in the hive is it? I can't tell.
