SHB .... Again
I just had my first experience with SHB in a weak hive I was trying to save. I've searched the archives but can't find anything on how to salvage damaged frames (with plastic core foundation.) Can I be reassured that freezing will kill all beetles, larvae, and eggs? And then how do you get rid of the slimy mess? It doesn't seem to scrape off very cleanly. Will a garden hose spray do it?
Will coumophos under cardboard work on screened bottom boards? Or would that be pointless if West traps were used? Is it over-kill to use West traps on bottom and also Beetle Blaster-type above?
I know I never want to find that kind of slimy mess again! In past I have often stored supers for a week or two awaiting enough for an extraction run. I shudder to think what would happen if those b******s got in them.
