Are we talking pieces of comb with honey that you cut off?  If so, I just set it out and let the bees rob the honey from it.  This time of year they're not much into robbing though.  If they don't rob it, put it in the freezer for later in the season.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Wash out the remaining nectar with a hose, let it dry and start saving the wax for when you have enough to melt it down.
