I have some novice questions on honey frames (medium super). Currently have 3 supers (9-frame mediums) above 2 deeps of Italians that over-wintered from package last year.
1) Do you wait until the the honey frames are completely (100%) capped before extracting?
I have a lot of honey frames with 97% of cells capped--some of the frames have a small patch of uncapped honey.
2) It is too late, but is it necessary to put cross-wires in wax foundation for honey in medium frames? The wax foundation I used has vertical wires.
I was told it wasn't necessary, but am wondering how they will extract (I have Dadant Junior Bench Extractor).
