I'm guessing these larve are small hive beetle, not wa worm. I removed the frame from my cut out and froze it for two days then put it back in......should I do anything else?

just leave frame in the sun?....will they crawl away?


The freezing seems to have worked. Dead larve on the landing board, and the comb is almost repaired...wow, that was quick

Just remember about not putting too much comb on in the brood chamber that the bees can not defend. They are mainly after the brood comb with pollen.

SHB like sandy soil and shade locations. Put the hives in full sun and look into putting down a big rubber tarp under your hives. You can sprinkle something Borax around the edges. It will kill the larvae if they get that far.
