    I extracted my shallows and then let the bees clean them up. I then removed them and put them in the freezer. After removing from the freezer I put them in large garbage bags and seled them. Will this be adequate for storage until next season?

    Maybe. If they are clean and if you froze them, you should have killed any moths. Where are you putting them? Outside in winter does well if the mice and the moths can't get in. I like to spray them with certan to kill the moths. It's a bacteria spore that is to the wax moths what AFB is to bees. It will stay in the wax and kill moths whenever they try to start up.

    If you're into chemicals, the standard is the paramoth to keep the moths out. I hate the smell of it.

    Hi,

    Is Certan harmful? I thought the US hasn't accepted its use? If it has, where can I get some?

    Thanks

    I have seen documentation that said it has bee approved. But the only place I know of to buy it is in Cananda. http://www.beeworks.com/uspage5.asp

    It's listed simply as "Wax moth control".
