Well, I am now paying for my neglect. Last spring I found a dead hive, still with plenty of honey, and also lots of moldy dead bees. I did not know how to store them with the dead bees stuck in them, so I stacked the boxes out in the yard in the hopes that my other hive would clean them eventually. Well, they did clean them of the honey, as did the ants and other bees and wasps. The dead bees are still there, though. And, unfortunately, wax moths also invaded, and what I found today was absolutely disgusting. Webs and larvae and yick. I am assuming the comb is a goner, and am thinking of taking the frames out and leaving them (well away from the hives) for a bird and skunk feast, then cleaning up the frames and starting over. I guess my question is... is this the right approach? What is the best way to clean up badly infested frames? Also, what should be done with the frames that have some damage, but only in a small area?
