If you decide to get beehives one of the things you have to have is storage for the hives. You will have unused hive components at some point even if it’s only during winter. With the disaster of a year I had I was more neglectful than I should have been when it comes to storage. Almost all the hives are put up but because of the moth damage most of the foundations will have to be replaced.
My best option here, there are also hives in the garbage bags, wax moths don’t like drafts so if the hives are being stored in the open they need to be drafty, I hope this is drafty enough. I have hung unused supers vertically from rafters and didn’t have a moth problem, unfortunately they were in the way and a few fell causing damage, hopefully this storage will be sufficient and nothing will fall on the truck!
