On this topic, a few other questions...
I pulled honey this weekend, since there isn't a flow going on and I only pulled frames that were 100% capped, I don't think any of my hives really need the boxes back on at this time. Therefore, I just put the boxes out near my hives for the bees to clean up.
First, I know I want to avoid the rain getting these boxes while I have them out...I picked them up last night for that reason. When I put them back out this morning, I attempted to rig a make shift roof in case we get rain while I'm at work, however, if it does rain, I'm sure they will get wet to some degree. If so, exactly how bad is that and what's the best way to handle it from there?
Secondly, how do I know when the bees are done cleaning them up?....I'm assuming when they simple quit visiting them...Correct?
Third, Best storing options for this comb? Are frames in the boxes stacked in a barn and covered sufficient or do I have to take extra steps to really seal them up?....Or, does that cause other issues, i.e. mold, etc?
My other option is a spare bedroom....Not sure how that one will go over with the wife.
