Over winter I had some wax moth on some of my frames. I treated them. Can I now use the frames or should I change out the foundation?

I treated with the stuff that smells like moth balls.I think it is called Para-Moth
May be 25 % of each frame is damaged , Maybe

if it is Paramoth and NOT generally sold mothballs,, (they are two different chemical compounds) then air them out for a few days and use them

If you've watched bees pulling out webs you can see that it's a lot of work for them. A few webs are less work than building all that comb. A lot of webs is a lot more work than building the comb. If it's a lot, I scrap the comb. If it's just a tunnel or two, I let the bees fix it.
