I had a foundationless deep frame full of honey put aside in our shed to give to one of our colonies before winter, nicely sealed in plastic so it would keep. Then some wasps got in the shed, found a hole in the plastic and obliterated the frame of honey. Check it out:

Nothing left but dry crumbly pieces of comb.

    That’s too bad. Have you done this before? Also, do you have to worry about wax moths in a case like this?

      It’s the first time. It was a stupid mistake.

      I’m not sure about wax moths. I thought I had wax moths last year, but it turns out it was some kind of other less destructive native moth. Someone told me we don’t have wax moths in Newfoundland.
