Around here, we have all been told that when you harvest honey supers.. extract them quickly..dont leave them laying around in the honey house for several days. The hive beetles will lay eggs and ruin your crop. This week a non-beekeeper asked me a question. "Well, since you can certainly end up with a couple of beetles in those harvested supers.. what if they do lay an egg or have already prior to you extracting.. what happens to the egg ? Would they hatch out in the honey ?

It got me to thinking... if we extract a frame of honey that does have a SHB egg on it.. where does it go ? Caught in the bowl strainer I certainly hope
