    Default Storing Feed Supers?

    Ok had a good winter survival rate with excess honey left in supers for winter feed. How is the best way to store supers of honey for feed next fall and winter during the summer months? Thanks

    Larry, good to know you have had a good survival rate so far. However, you live farther nor than I do and I am not sure our winter is over yet, thought it has been a mild one even by our standards. Your bees may still need some of those stores. I would leave the supers on the hives. When spring gets here and you don't need the stores, I would extract it and let the bees refill the supers.
