    when buying a new beehive do I need to clean it with bleach and water still?

    I use steam and a germicidal ultraviolet light to sterilize hives that I'm reusing. Bleach works well but the bees may not stay in there if you bleached within a week without airing the hive body. When using bleach, water it down to a point where you can work with it without burning your eyes.
