I recently had to shake out a laying worker hive, and now I have a lot of comb to deal with. Some is capped honey, some is uncapped nectar and pollen, some larvae (drone presumably), and all potentially contaminated with wax moth eggs (though almost no visible larvae). I am cycling all comb through the freezer to take care of wax moths, but I assume I need to get the frames "cleaned dry" before storage till next year. Is this true? I can''t keep them all in the freezer. Should I just set them out and allow my hives to rob them clean (a safe distance away)? I'd rather put a box with frames to be cleaned on top of each active hive, and let them clean them out without initiating any robbing. But how do you keep the bees from moving up into the frames to be cleaned and making them a part of the "regular" hive? Do you put an inner cover or some other spacer between brood chambers and box-to-be-cleaned? Also, I'd like it if the bees took care of the (now dead) eggs and larvae left in the comb? Can I expect this if I just put the boxes of frames out to be robbed clean? Can I even expect this if I put the boxes back on a hive? Whatever method I use, after they're cleaned, I plan on refreezing the comb and sealing it tight over the winter. Thanks for any advice. I didn't expect to be worrying about stored comb my first year.
