    Default Left over honey.

    Have some from a dead out.
    Should I harvest it? Or hold onto it for the nucs I'm getting and maybe swap it for some spring honey so I can compare the honey?

    Did you use any chemical treatments on the Hive? if so do not extract and consume it. I would keep it for the NUCs. Jim

    If you fed last fall it is probably sugar not honey.

    Nope, no chemicals. That being said, would swap for spring honey?

    Yup, me too! And not understanding how some people think fall honey is to strong. But different strokes for different folks I guess!
