I recently aquired a bunch of pierco frames from another beekeeper who has gone out. The frames have been used and need to be scraped and rewaxed(I would say they are around 8 years old but not used for more then two).
As I begin going through this effort in my spare time, I am looking at the edges of these frames and notice the chanels that run along. Looks like beetles could hide in there possibly. Have any of you experienced issues with this in areas where SHB is prevolent?
Beleive me this job is time consuming enough and hard to justify so if there are negatives to these frames regarding beetles, I'll offer them to someone else who doesn't mind working with them.
Thanks for your input
