I recently bought some used boxes, which I am in the process of cleaning up for my use. I have done needed repairs, will wash and scrape them, and then wash with bleach solution. (They were empty boxes, sitting outside unoccupied for several years.)
A couple of questions:
1) Is this adequate, or should I scorch them too?
2) There are some frames (without foundation) in some of the boxes. Perhaps 100 or so frames. They are repairable, but I am a little leary of them, not knowing the history of the equipment, and whether they might harbor disease. Cleaning up boxes is lots easier than cleaning frames. So, clean them, or use them for kindling for the wood stove?
Thanks for the input.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
