The title says it all; almost. My frames (wax maggot-infested this summer, then frozen for a week, then stored, after scraping, in an outdoor shed) I plan to use in spring. So ....

1) once I get the Bt A, when would be the appropriate time for spraying? Do I spray each frame-side and let dry before placing them in the supers?

2) Once into the season, what if I get another moth infestation? Could I remove the frames and spray again? Would the bees accept this or be harmed otherwise?

Your suggestions/observations would be appreciated a heap .... :s

I spray and then let them dry when I bring them in for storage.... Both sides of the frame.... My understanding is that this works well to prevent an infestation but is less effective if the frames have been infested as the moths are most vulnerable right after the eggs hatch.....
