Reusing frames with old comb


#1

I was going through my spare boxes today which are full of old comb. I found some that had mold on the the comb. These are plastic foundation with a wax coating. Can I scrape them off and have the bees rebuild them?

Here is my partner in crime putting on new coats of tung oil.

Thanks

If they are quite ratty and moldy looking I’d be tempted to clean off the wax and start afresh.
