Yesterday I managed to pick up an early infestation of SHB in one of my flow frames. I have removed the frame from the hive, bagged it and placed it in a freezer.
My questions are what to do next with the frame.
The frame was semi capped on the infected side but fully capped on the other side with no signs of SHB. Does the structure of the flow frame allow the SHB to burrow all the way to the other side and therefore showing no visible signs when visually inspecting the fully capped side?
Also, what is everyone’s suggestion for cleaning the flow frame to get rid of the honey and dead larvae in the flow frame so that I can put it back in the hive?
Thanks in advance for your help!
