 +Even during routine inspection, we might observe a buildup of propolis, burr or bridge comb, and general messiness frequently resulting from bee space violations inside the hives.
  
 +The primary reason for cleaning equipment like this is to facilitate future inspections and activities with little to no mess to slow down or prevent those inspections and activities.
 +
 +The tops and bottoms of frames are easy to see this messiness and should be scraped off as you go along. ​ Collect discarded material that has been scraped into plastic bags or another portable container so as not to leave detritus on the apiary grounds to attract predators and pests.
 +
 +The inner cover and hive box sides also need to be scraped from time to time.
