I'm thinking of building a bookshelf like shelving rack to store frames (I use wooden frames with plastic foundation) where the frames would hang openly on the bars, much like an open top frame hive but open, and with 3 or so tiers.
It is my understanding that if the frames are stored like this, and they have enough light on them, the wax moths should leave them alone.
Question is: how much is enough light? does it have to be bright light? or will shaded light be sufficient? My options are to build this rack under a covered patio like area of our barn, which is open on three sides, but there would never be direct sunlight where the rack would be. Or I'd also like to maybe build a small covered rack out at the beehive and put under a tree canapy next to the hive, and this would be similar to a three sided firewood storage container similar to a firewood rack to protect them from the elements.
any idea on this?
