New to Beemaster from Ohio
« on: March 20, 2012, 05:11:26 PM »
Greetings from Ohio- had bees a few years now.
Will take this opportunity to ask a quick question - can I eat honey from a deadout?
I usually just feed back, but everyone came out of winter with serious stores remaining except for one that I left a super on overwinter, and the cover blew off in a storm a month ago and they perished. Not looking to do many splits, and still have a few frozen deeps in the freezer.
I dont treat.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum. If you didn't treat or feed sugar water last fall, I would think that you'd be ok.

Welcome Larry.  I'm also from south central Ohio, what part do you hail from?

That's a ways from where I'm at now.  I lived in Athens for a while.  Good friend runs the hotel on Blennerhassett.
