I put the incinerator into operation on Saturday morning to burn the cardboard packaging from the polytunnels. Thcardboard was in reality used as kindling to burn some old hive frames, some of which contained old wax. The frames were in brooder boxes and supers we bought in a hive sale in April. Some of the frames were so old and worn out that they could have been infected so burning was the best solution. Alas, we also have to clear up after some scumbag selfish moron decided to dump a load of rubbish outside our allotment gate a few weeks ago. All the cardboard from this moron's new bathroom fittings went onto the incinerator as well. As the photo above shows, the bees wax assisted the incineration process.
