    SP, you have some bad links in your post. Also BT does expire.

    This way I can make up a box how I want it when I need it in just several minutes.

    Sorry but it is side ways.

    Will the wax moths stay away from the comb if they are open air like that? I have a horrible problem keeping them out of sealed supers that I store in my barn. I could easily build something like this if it works!

    I know I'm bringing a necro thread back to life here. Sorry about that.

    I'm 1st year with just a handful of drawn frames to store but I'm trying to sort out a method that is workable long term as I get more and more. Is open air (after freezing) acceptable for pretty much any temperature range? I live in zone 8b and it can get pretty darn hot in my shop in the summer.

    Are there problems with other pests? I.e. ants, roaches, etc that might get into it?

    I use the freezer for a month then put them in a rack that gets lots of air and light.

    Simple question, John - Why is light important?

    Thanks, Michele

    Wax moth don’t like the light. They look for dark areas.
