Does anyone store their supers or Frames of wax not being used in a box or storage container of somekind? I would like to start storing mine in something to keep the wax moths out but most of all the mud dobber bees. Not sure if a could idea to store in containers or not. Thoughts? Thanks :scratch:

The past few yrs I have been storing them in a big trash bags. I do freeze them for a couple days to make sure no living moths are inside

Empty honey supers that don't have pollen in them generally are not bothered by wax moths. I just stack mine up in the bee yards and put covers on them and they are fine the next season with no damage.

I second Mr. Beeman's idea. Been storing mine this way with no problems. The secret is plenty of Air and Light. Dale
