I recently lost a hive to wax moth but they also got into the flow frames and laid eggs so some of the cells are full of silk cocoons. Some quick questions;
- What is the best way to clean the flow frames? I can pull out the larva with some tweezers but that pretty time consuming so I thought could wash them out in a soapy bathtub?
- Will the honey be safe to consume still? To encourage the wax moth grubs to leave I submersed the flow frames which still had honey in water and they jumped out pretty quick. As the wax is water proof will the honey be ok? There was alot of mess and silk on the frames though too.
Its been a bit of learning experience regarding these months but I would like to salvage what I can and try again.
