If this is a dead horse, please forgive me. I have been wondering how exactly it is that a beekeeper stores all the empty frames of drawn, extracted comb that result from the harvest. Obviously those who crush and strain do not deal with this (like me at his point in my experience), but those who extract must have drawn comb. I have read that these frames area a valuable resource. There must be some way that these are protected on a long term basis until they are needed in supers during a flow. Are they kept inside, outside in a barn, covered, treated with some agent to prevent infestation of parasites and scavengers, etc. How long do they keep?
