    Re: Where to put Nuc

    I'm in Indiana and the reason I'm making it is because I have and extra queen. I have a hive that is boiling over with bee's. If it was not for that I wouldn't try it.

    Re: Washing Plastic Honey Filters

    I used hot tap water and the wax that was stuck in the screen came right out. For being cheap I think they are well made.

    Re: Storying Full Suppers

    I don't have to blow off bee's because their won't be any on them when I store the suppers. Capped honey should absorb humidity plus humidity here is never that bad.

    Re: Drying Supers With Uncapped Honey

    With humidity high in the hive which no doubt is higher than outside, then more circulation should help.
