Last summer/fall one of my hives lost their queen and eventually dwindled down to zero. I didn't take the hive apart until a month or so later, and the combs were severely damaged by waxmoth, as shown in the pictures below: I stacked the boxes on a piece of plywood, put a newspaper with Paramoth crystals over it, covered tight and left it stored over the winter. Now the waxmoth are all dead (it was a very cold Wisconsin winter, and I didn't skimp on the Paramoth) but the frames, as the pictures show, are still an unholy mess. I've heard that if I put these supers onto a strong, well-populated hive, the bees will clean out the damage. However, my only hive didn't survive the winter and I am starting new packages this spring. To add this disaster as a second box to a new package, even if it's growing well, seems like a lousy thing to do for my bees. Also, I am not sure that some of the waxmoth eggs didn't simply go dormant. So, I think these frames are eventually destined for a big blazing campfire of wax and wood. My question is: as you can see in the center picture, quite a few of the frames are chock full of bee bread, and some of them have patches of capped honey. Early spring in Wisconsin is not a resource-rich time, so I am wondering if I should give my new hives a chance to rob out the resources from these frames? I was thinking to leave the frames sitting out somewhere outdoors, a 100 feet or so from my hives, after I install the new packages, and let the foragers grab up the bee bread before I burn the frames. Does this make sense? Will the foraging bees make use of the resources in this comb, or will they not touch it with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole? Thanks very much.
