Honeycombs are held in this solution for 24 hours and then they are washed with water and are dried. After that, they are prepared to be used. Herewith, cells are cleaned of all contaminants well, apparently because of the fact that honeycombs adsorb chlorine smell for a short time.

A slightly different method is used for the wooden frames cleaning. Firstly, propolis and bee excrements are removed from the wooden frames by mechanical means. Afterwards, the honeycombs, already prepared for disinfection are placed on trays in angular position in winter quarters or beekeeping house and the cells are put with Monochloride Iodine solution in rotation: from one side to another. Afterwards, the honeycombs are placed in upright position and are held in such position for a day. Further, solution is dropped out the cells, and they are washed with water. After careful drying, the combs are prepared to be installed to colony.

During immersion of the combs into containers, disinfectant solution doesn't reach all the cells due to high surface tension of disinfectant solution film between the ends of wax comb cell. For this reason, disinfection method of irrigation is more reliable.
