How long do you freeze frames from defunct hives before feeling safe giving them to a new hive?

We are grateful you are here

How long do you freeze frames from defunct hives before feeling safe giving them to a new hive?

Whether for wax moth, varroa control, or general health benefits – what's your rule of thumb? There are varying different suggestions from different sources, so I'm hoping we can see a consensus here.

It will always depend on how good your freezer is, how many frames at once, and whether you have other tools available. If you have a more detailed view, please share it in the comments!

(I'm curious specifically because I have a hive that succumbed to varroa over the winter and am keen to reuse the frames)
