    Default Immature SHB? Fumigate combs?

    I've seen adult SHB and their larva, but today, while examining comb from a deadout, I spotted what might best be described as a Mini-SHB. About 1/3 the size of an adult. Are these indeed SHB?

    Second; I'd like to kill any pests remaining in my combs before I replace them. I know about freezing. Is there a way to fumigate (or some other method) the frames and leave them habitable? - Mike

    Freezing is the best way to go. The only thing I can tell you is that the little suckers can survive being sealed up and dosed w/ carbon dioxide, I gave up after 24hr.
