  3. Re: How can I make hive boxes that are perfectly stackable-a necessary requirement.

    Re: Messed up frame in a deep?

    Go down to 9 frames in the super extracting will be easy.
  9. Re: Why the tall stacks of supers, why not take some and process??

    If you take off you supers and let them sit to long then ants, mice, wax moth could affect your crop. Plus if you leave them on they will finish capping and you can pull them all at once. It is way...

  15. Re: What do u do with your honey supers after you extract?

    They will move right up into them when they are wet. Clean now or Clean later does it really matter unless you have no place to store wet supers. You need to have the place ant free of course.
