no need to freeze them up here this time of the year.  If a colony dies mother nature takes care of the freezeing

Ok, if your going to eat or sell the honey bee careful what you store next to them, lots of spicy food and garlic could make the honey taste " interesting"

I keep a few deep freezers in the basement for freezing boxes.   I just throw the whole super with frames in for a few days before storage.  Remember when you pull them out of the freezer, they will condensate and that water needs to dry off before bagging or placing into storage due to mold.  I end up with frames with some honey that I save for spring and I just leave the supers in the freezer until I need them.
