    Default Extracted Frames & Boxes Question ...... 1st year Harvest

    I am extracting honey for the first time this year. My question is: How to store the extracted frames and boxes. Where I work we have the exact size cardboard boxes that would fit my medium boxes. My thought is: I could wrao the box WITH the extracted frames in a plastic garbage bag and then place it inside a cardboard box for winter storage. Would this keep the wax moths at bay? Do you see a pending problem with this storage method? I awaite your knowledgeable responses. Thank you, in advance...................

    Put them back on the hive. Maybe they will fill it again. That's what I do w/ mine. When I take them off after the last honey is made, I store them outside.

    I stack them on wearhouse pallets, shallows 10 high and mediums 9 high, cover them w/ a blue tarpa nd another pallet on top. I keep them in the apiarys where they get cleaned out by the bees.

    I know guys who store their wet supera inside over winter.Gets the bees up into them when put on the next year.
