Re: Will Paradichlorobenzene kill SHB or any larvae in stored comb?
Stored some supers that I thought were clear of SHB and any of their eggs or larvae. Much to my surprise, I soon noticed pupa crawling out from them. After looking I found small infestations of all ages. Washed them out and stored again, this time using PDB. That wiped them out.

Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don’t have film.
