How cold does it have to get to kill wax moth eggs?

I've got some empty boxes stacked outside now. Maybe I should unstack them and lean them against the barn so they cool faster?

Hey Ken,

Best thing to do is Freeze the frames for 24 hours and then seal up a lot of them together, leave no gaps for moths to get in.

I also usually put a newspaper between boxes, just incase a moth gets in.

You should also only store seven frames per box, leaving a gap between the frames.  Moths hate gaps and fresh air.

I have heard people hang them under the eaves on their shed or house and the constant cold air stops them, I have never tried this so can't comment.

Cheers...Gary
