Re: How to remove wax with moth from the wooden frame?
Ive had great luck with freezing the combs before storing. After I pull the super from the chest freezer I stack them all in such a way that air and light can flow through them............so far so good and we have had temps of 100 degrees lately. I have kept checking them each week since September and havnt had any problems!! However, my experimental unfrozen frame placed out in the open in my garage didnt have such great results.............not over run with wax moth larvae, but still a couple drilling through the combs. Froze the frame and put it back out in the open and it hasnt "hatched" any more wax moth!
