I downsized one of my hives today that was suffering from deformed wing and was being treated with apivar. I moved it from deep and 2 medium 8 frame to same frames but nuc size. They had too much space to defend. I am feeding them as well. My question is the extra frames. I kept the best frames with stores and brood in the hive. A few of them still have a good bit of pollen. The bees cleaned the honey and nectar from these frames. Can I just freeze and reuse them next year? And if so, will the pollen be viable for later use or should I just cut out the comb and start over with these frames? I would hate to lose this comb even if it is mostly brood comb.
