I had a colony die, when I took this hive apart I found starved bees and moldy pollen .Will this white hairy mold hurt a new swarm or will they just abscond, Any info would be great.

Is it safe to assume in a winter dead-out, with green mold where the cluster was, bees will clean that out and reuse the comb safely?

Brush off as many bees as you can and store it well ventilated to prevent matters from getting any worse. New bees will treat it like moving into a messy apartment, clean it up and makes a great home with cell walls already built!:D
