Until this yr. I have used moth crystals, but after talking and reading about so many people storing the clean, dryed honey supers in a bright place with air blowing throught them, I decided it would be better than the chemicals.
after a wonderful honey season, with strong bees, I harvested my honey, bottled it and let the bees clean the frames out. For many reason, I had not checked on the supers for about two weeks and when I looked at them many were destoryed! It had black droppings all over the bottom side of the wooden ware (they were sitting on the sides, facing a bright window that gets lots of sunshine and I had a heavy duty fan blowing air through them ) the comb has been "chewed" up some have waxmoth damage (casings with larava) but most are just gone--eatten away. What happened to my supers.. Thanks debbie
PS there is NO wax moth 'webbing", NO slick slim.....NO odor amd MO other bugs/ worms in site..
