Hi
A week ago our bees swarmed and left the hive. We 2 boxes and a top flow hive. I am need some advice on how to clean and store these frames. There is very little honey in them. I do not want them to mold, nor do i have space in a freezer to put them in.
I have noticed small yellow "things", to me looks like chipped of wax.

Please help!!!!

Post photos. Are the "small yellow things" in the roof of the open cells?

If all the bees left, they didn't swarm, they absconded. If you weren't observing them too much, they could have died off and you've had robbers for awhile and they almost finished. I wonder if the small yellow things are wax cappings from robbers. Any brood present?

There are a few broods left yes. I was observing them pretty closely :/
Now my concern is just not letting the frames mold
