I negleted a brood box that had gone queenless and as the population dimished the Hive Beetle took over laying 100s of eggs which hatched to larvae (at least I think that is what happened). The comb are wet with slime, which I thought was uncurred honey. I froze them last night and put them outside today hoping sorrounding bees would clean them up but they barely touched them.
Is there any salvaging them or should I just toss them?
The frames are nice drawn comb.
