    Just wondering what are you guys that have problems with them doing about it. As far as honey extraction & storing of supers & just around the Honey house setting?

    Brian, the secret is to not have problems. This is accomplished by extracting honey as quickly as it comes into the honey house, keeping your uncapping tank cleaned out and processing wax as quickly as possible. Given a place to live without competition from a strong hive of bees (your honey house stacked full of supers and cappings) populations explode.

    I do something that i learned from my father. I store my empty honey supers in my bee yards, on pallets with a sheet of plywood covering the top, I stack rocks on the plywood to keep it from blowing away. The bees in the yard clean them out and store the honey in the brood nest. My grandpa came up with this idea in the 40's in an effort to bulk up hives for wintering.
    I am holding on to the hope I have inside... Kutless
