full on honey! I have 9 brooder frames of honey mostly capped. I got them to use when I get my start of bees in a few weeks. A friend is going to divide her hive with me. I have then in the coolest room in the house. (for nearly 3 weeks now) Can I stick the frames (only 2 show a start of worms) in a freezer for several days to kill the worms? I want use these frames as food for the new divide. But not sure if it will do anything to the honey?? Thanks...
Yes freeze 'em. You need to keep them in the freezer for at least 2 days or leave them in the freezer and take them out the day before you need them. Do not worry about the honey it will still be good. Also, when you rob the hive this summer place the honey frames in the freezer to kill off any insect and parasitic insect eggs before you process the honey. You can also keep them in the freezer until you have time to process them.
