This being my very first year in bees, I was looking at saving a bit of
money as I have to buy everything from the ground up. I have been offered an extensive
collection of used equipment from a person who has quit the hobby. There
is absolutely everything I will need from hives and frames right up to
an extractor and bottling pails. My dilemna is that some of the frames
have wax-moth damage. There is about 160 frames total, with about 50
clean, 50 needing cleaning and the remainder needing the foundation
replaced. Should I pass on this stuff because of the wax-moth?? Can I
remove the crap and flame-sterilize everything?? It still is a good deal
but the guy wants to sell it all together. Thanks for any help, Glen
Archer.
