I froze some brood frames with honey in them last year and during the time they were in the freezer (the spare frig/freezer) someone put a paintbrush with non-waterbased paint on it in the frig. The petroleum smell migrated into the freezer compartment and the frames now smell. I have been "airing" them out for over a week and do not detect any lessening of the smell. I have opened a few cells and tasted the honey and it tastes fine. But I don't want to put the frames directly into the hive in case it runs them out of the hive. My only other thought is to put them out in the yard and see if the bees are attracted--any other ideas/thoughts?
