      Freeze it, kill the moths
      Then let the bees salvage it out of the frames
      The COMBS may not be 'recoverable' but the honey certainly is

      Wax moths, honey is not recoverable.   I put frames with honey and or nectar in a zip lock or iron shut plastic bag to seal it up, and freeze for 48 hours.  If there is uncapped nectar, I toss in a silica dry pack as well to prevent mold.  When done this way it will keep for years.
