Hey Bee Friends,
We were just recently given a bunch of old Langstroth bee boxes and frames as the old bloke who had them hadn’t kept bees for years and had moved onto other things.
Slightly interested in some of the frames he gave us they appear to have gauge marks in them similar to wax moth cocoon shapes. I tried checking out the internet for frames being “gauged” by wax moths but couldn’t find any photos.
If so, just wanting reassurance that as long as they are clean of any debris and such are they still safe? I feel like we should throw them out as they’re relatively cheap and I don’t want other pests to have places to hide, however hubby disagrees and feels like they should be safe.
What does everyone else think? Is my guess correct?
