Need some advice about storing frames of comb from a dead out. I had put them out for the other bees to rob, and they did a respectable job, but now there are dandelions and other flowers blooming, and they have lost interest.

I have about 16 deep frames and 10 shallow frames. The deep frames have crystallized honey in one corner - about 1/6 to 1/4 of the frame. Some is still capped. Another maybe 1/4 of the frames is where the cluster was, and it is moldy.

The shallow is not so bad, just crystallized honey.

How do I store these without ending up with a moldy (or ant-y) mess?

Freeze them for 2 to 3 days, then seal them in plastic garbage bags. The freezing will kill the wax moths and other pests. You can store them any where it's cool after that.
