Thought this might be of interest:

I store comb in my nucs and seal them up if I don't have the active hives to put the comb in.

One of my nuc screens failed. Thankfully, there was only a single frame of very old comb in there - but the wax moths did get it. I caught it early.

The first photo is the frame with a sheet of webbing hanging over it like a curtain. The frame probably went into storage less than a month ago - so they work fast!


The second photo is the sheet of webbing that they spun over the other side of the frame. When I pulled the frame out - the sheet stayed behind because it was also attached to the nuc.
