I left the Apistan strips in all winter. It is spring now and I have taken the strips out of hive. The bees are doing well. I have a super on top of the two hive bodies. What can I do with the honey that is left in the super. I know it is comtaminated, and must come off before I can put new honey supers on for the spring flow. Can this honey be used for anything, or do I cut it out and dispose of the honey. I know I shouldn't have left the strips in, as the bees will build up a tolerance towards the strips. Any help would be appreciated.
Or you could do as probably many do; Not worry about it and sell the honey. As in all things there are some that would not let an apistan strip keep them from doing that I'm sure. Although personally, I have not used Apistan or any other chemicals except Sucrocide and confectionary sugar, so far. I am going to use the latest verroa treatement that is now available, Api-life var or the thymol patties EPA approved???
