I am planing to make some Swarm Traps, and i have a lot of old brood comb that i can use.
But they are with mold or something white on it... Don't know if it is mold.

Can i use them for Swarm Traps?
If yes : Can i use all of them for 10 Frames Super ( 40 Liters )? or even for my bees ?

If not, what should i do ?

I'd say yes, but will let others with more experience chime in.

I would put them outside in the sun, and flip to expose both sides.

Cheers,

Yes, you can use them for swarm trap. You can also use them for a super/ for your bees. If you put those on a strong hive, they will get cleaned right up.
Thanks for reply merince.
What do you think, should i freeze them for 2 or 3 days ?
I have heard that is good for killing all living eggs. ( but don't know if that is correct )

I've put comb that was fuzzy with mold in a hive with a good swarm and they made it look like new in less than a week. Best to take better care of it, but the bees will clean it up. Never hurts to freeze it first if you can.
