Sterilizing equipment is cheap health insurance when you are putting a new package of bees into a dead out hive or pre-owned equipment.  ALL hive components can be sterilized using gamma irradiation – boxes, frames, comb and honey.  That is certainly cheaper than the cost of new boxes, frames, and foundation plus the time, energy, and food resource bees need to build comb.
