1st time posting here though I am a regular reader/ lurker I am hoping the vast experience of this group can give me some guidance.
Background: I am a 1st year beekeeper and unfortunately the bees suffer while I am on my learning curve. I am in SE USA where SHB are a horrible problem.
I found my largest hive completely infested with SHB today. I broke apart the hive, took the clean frames & placed in a new box with brood from another hive. All the frames with SHB larva…oh my! The sunshine brings out the larva and I am putting them in the freezer because I don’t know what else to to with the slimed frames. Do I just cut out all the comb and toss/ burn/ what? Or can any of it be salvaged by washing after freezing? All the info on the net is about control but little to nothing info on what to do at this point in time.
BTW, love this forum!— Pam
