I have 6 supers that I extracted from, then gave them back to the hives to dry them up, and I am now ready to store them criss-cross in my screen porch. In the past I stored them in plastic containers but I only had a couple then and I growing now. I misted them with BT Aiwazai once dry to take care of wax moths. However we still have SHB around, and surely then can get into the screen porch if they wish. Some frames have a very few cells of pollen (eg 10 or so). Would SHB be a problem? What is you opinion? Thank you very much,
Stavros

As long as the bees have cleaned them up SHB will not be a problem. The main concern is wax moth and maybe the occasional rodent.

As pndwind said, SHB shouldn't be a problem. I like to stack mine just like they're on the hive with a cover on top, and I wrap some painters tape around the joints to make double sure nothing gets in. Don't know if that's really necessary or not, but I've never had problems in my storage, so I'll stick with it.
