    Default What is this?


    This is one of the outer frames in the upper super. The queen is in the lower super. Most of the super is nectar and pollen. I just haven't seen these white particles before and was wondering what they are.

    Thanks,

    Default It's cool

    Nothing more than granules of honey left after the bees removed the liquid. They'll clean it all up lickety split.

    Default No problem

    That is what is left of the crystallized honey after the bees have used the liquid part. It is normal this time of the year so there is no reason to worry. If you taste some it will be sweet.
