Re: leaving honey on over winter, harvesting in spring?
I have a similar question.
I have one hive that has stored up two eight frame mediums of honey. Making for four eight frame mediums altogether. Should I just leave that fourth super this winter (risking crystallization) or should I remove it to freeze and give back if needed?
I'm trying to think about clustering behaviour and which would be more beneficial, and that makes me think it would be better to put the top box on the bottom if I leave it...
