Yes it can be frozen for long time storage. It will not affect quality. If it is frozen while still liquid the freezing will lessen the chance of granulation. That's why comb honey should be frozen for storage (and kill wax moth eggs).
Freezing will not "lessen the chance of granulation". I will slow the process down, but it won't affect whether it will granulate or not. The prime temperature at which honey granulates is 55 degrees. Aything above or below that temperature slows the process, but doesn't keep it from happening.
Store it in your freezer. It will not harm anything.
Comb honey should be stored or put in a freezer for a time to kill wax moth larvae. That is true and correct.
You can't store comb honey in that much heat w/out first destroying the comb, ie melting it. If you are going to keep your honey in comb form, I would be more worried, in TX, about melting combs than I would about discoloration. 160 degrees plus will burn and discolor honey. Don't store it above 140 for long periods of time.
