Put quite a few hive boxes away earlier in the week but I forgot I had a few under the house in the crawl space. One brood Box was in a freezer along with the frames of a super, having freezer space is really good for putting the frames in for sanatizing, freezing won’t remove chemicals but will kill most organics.
Unfortunately I also had a brood Box and a super next to the freezer and hadn’t worried about them but unfortunately moths got in them under the house.
The frozen boxes went into storage and the moth infested frames went in the freezer. Hopefully in a week or so I’ll put them in storage as well.
Unfortunately the deep freezer will need a good cleaning from all the moth larva and hive beetles that froze and fell out of the frames. I really hope storing the hives in the rafters will work.
As much as trying to grow your own food and raise bees can be a pain I wouldn’t trade the possibilities for any apartment or house in the suburbs.
