SHB is making a mess of my life. Anyway, after the last disaster, I took a couple of fouled frames that I had frozen to rid it of the zillion or so nasty maggots and but them back in a NUC box. A couple weeks later, I went back to it and, sure enough, it was squirming again. Off to the freezer it went. My poor wife just gags when I do this. All the gross larva pile outta' the frame and start falling all over the frozen corn, bean, hamburger. The things she puts up with......
I wonder if this would be a part of the over-all control a person might use. No need to say "your attracting SHB's to your apaiary". Oh, believe me, it would make little difference. I am over-run with the filthy things.

Keep it in the garage, carport or whatever, just not in the house...**buhhh***shiver**** makes my skin crawl to think about it...I wouldn't even wait for a holiday..you would get it early!!! angry  Think about it, everyone wins, you don't have to listen to what I know she is saying (probably in a strident tone) & she isn't grossed out!!!   Jody

The 13 gallon small kitchen garbage bag is the thing to put the frames in for the freezer.

I have been getting a side benefit of getting SHB's in my moth traps.  I have them but they have not taken anything over...  I know they are attracted to 'infected' comb and it sounds like a good trap.  My wife would kill me if I didn't use a trash bag. tongue

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
