    Default Small Hive Beetle Eggs

    One year old comb with SHB eggs in cells, the combs have been frozen. Will bees clean these eggs from the cells if installed into hive?

    yes; I do that all the time. I put it in the freezer for a couple of days and put it back in a hive.

    Thanks! I installed the frames back into the hive and the house bees are cleaning the cells out.

    Do you have both top and bottom entrances? What other SHB control do you use?
