    Question sugared comb

    Ii pulled 3 supers today ,left from last season I left them on just to make sure they had enough stores to make it thru with all this crazy weather last year and this year too , and went to extract them only to find the honey had sugared up inside the comb is there any way i can salvage the comb or the honey or both ?

    Smile sugared comb

    Here is one method that I have used.
    Depending on the strength of your colonie.
    Take a comb scratcher or your hive tool and open up the cappings on one side of the comb, place it into warm tepid water and place the comb next to the cluster. You may have to do this procedure several times over the next weeks depending on the hive and weather.

    you can store it in the freezer. If you have a light hive scrape open the cappings and put it back on the hive they will clean it up.
