Cleaning up wet supers
Looking for a better method to clean up supers after extracting.
In the past, I've just put supers out near the bee yard. There are two problems with this. First, it stimulates robbing. Second, the yellowjackets have a field day. Yellowjackets are a real problem in this area some years. Last year they killed around 15% of my fall hives. Once they taste honey, they are like sharks in a feeding frenzy.
One year, I put the empty supers on top of my hives. Problem is they didn't transfer the honey down to the main hive. Just consolidated it and sealed it in place in the super itself.
I'd like a method that could be used to "top off" light hives. Transferring the honey from the wet supers down to the hive itself.
