Do you normally run all frames through a freezer before storing over winter? I will have some with comb and some that I cut the comb out of and scrapped as clean as I could(really old dark stiff comb). I really don't want any nasty surprises next spring.

Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

I freeze it all before.  We never did back in the day, but now I do.  I also don't scrap or clean any of the frames either.  I do let the bees rob out any honey after extraction, but then a couple days in a deep freezer and then into the cooler for next spring.
