    Yes Wax Mouth damage.
    I would put the frames in the freezer for 2-3 days then thaw and place in a hive.
    The bees will clean them up better than you could.

    I would cut out any badly webbed spots as removing the webs is a lot of work for the bees. I would leave any place not badly webbed. My guess is that is last year's (or older) damage unless you see some worms.
