What's the best way to ship honey in the comb?

My question regards the probability of the comb melting in the delivery vehicle on the way.

Kind regards, Kevin & Kitsy www.new-hope.biz

I've tried shipping via the airlines with my check baggage with the containers wrapped in bubble wrap, however the TSA folks always have to get their paws on it as honeycomb as it apparently looks like a bomb. Those that are not inspected seem to oose honey either from the change in elevation or TSA and baggage handlers not treating the boxes with care.

Freezing the individual portions or entire frames of comb is probably the best method. Put said frozen wrapped or boxed items in packing pellets and bubble wrap and ship USPS Priority Mail or FedEx.

Hey Kevin & Kitsy,

Have you tried Ross Rounds for honeycomb production? I'm going to this method for this year's honeycomb crop.
