    Question Partially Capped Supers

    I have just taken off my supers in preparation for extracting and fall mite treatments etc...

    Upon inspection of my supers, I noticed that some of the frames are only partially capped. For example, some of the frames are completely capped on one side and the other side is about 75-80% capped.

    I do not own a refractometer, so I can't test the honey to see what the moisture contect is.

    Does anyone have a recomendation if I should extract the partially capped frames?

    75 to 80 percent is usually good enough on just a few frames, eat what spins out first within a month and you have no worries mate!
