Hi, Maybe you could help me.
I recently received a hive from a friend that left the country. the FLOW HIVE is infested with wax moth and they also got into the flow frames and laid eggs so some of the cells of cocoons, also there are marks in the wood where the canons were made in the sides of the FLOW HIVE. I have some questions:
I tried using hot water (70 degrees) it cleans out most of the moths and the all there larvas and cocoons. Is there any easier and quicker way to do it?
How clean must the flow frames be before starting to reuse them? I am having a hard time getting all the glue/dung stuff off and out of of all the flow frame
Some of the Moth cocoons were grown into the wood of the hive frame and after removing them they left little grooves in the wood frame. Must it be refilled to avoid them coming back? and how do I do it?
