    I have wood frames with pierco foundations. Where is a good place to store these until ready to use?

    Is there drawn out comb on the foundation?

    If yes then I would suggest spraying with Bt, letting it dry and then stacking in a cool place with a couple of sheets of newspaper in between each box and top off with a telescopic cover or plywood.

    If just plain foundation stack up your boxes anywhere they will not get damaged.
