Wax moth vs. wooden frame


#1

I was assisting a new beekeeper this afternoon that had several frames stored over winter. Unfortunately, they were only lightly wrapped with a single plastic bag and wax moth did some serious damage to some of the frames.

There were a couple of holes straight through the end bar (one in middle of picture between the eyelets). :astonished:

Double wrap… or freeze your stickies/used frames over (next) winter!
