What to do next?
« on: December 03, 2007, 05:26:09 PM »
I harvested some honey on 12/1. Now what do I do with the super and frames that  still have some honey on them. It's been getting cooler so I didn't want to put it back on the hive to let them clean it up. Can I rap it up like that with the honey on it and store like that? Thanks

Leave the honey on it and protect it from ants and such.  It will help attract the bees into the supers in the spring time.

If its just a few frames, let the bees clean it up outside the hive. This late in year it wont promote robbing. I had a warm day two weeks ago and i let the girls clean out some cappings wax. They enjoyed it, the wax is now w/o honey and I didn't have to open hhive when it got cold.

I wrapped the frames in a plastic bag and froze it in my freezer. Next spring will place in hive for them to enjoy. (If you have the freezer space)
