- Apr 25, 2014The problem is that the larvae leave their feces throughout the comb and honey. For the comb, the bees can clean it out, but I would not want to eat honey that had been full of wax moth feces. It may be OK for the bees though, if not too far gone.

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.
