Small scale beekeepers often keep an extra freezer, sometimes just for seasonal use.

Freezing your “honey bank” frames is the easiest and best protection against insects, rodents, excess humidity and even crystallization. It also gives a beekeeper control of harvest timing: A frozen harvest can be thawed at a time of the year less busy for a beekeeper, maybe even during the winter holidays. At that time of year, perhaps some of winter extraction can even be directly packaged for gifts. Picture shows a couple 10-frame westerns and a 10-frame deep box fitting nicely inside an upright.
