    Default Used Honey Supers

    After your honey has been harvested what do you with the supers? How do you keep bee moths and mice from causing damage? Thanks for the help.

    I believe Sol just puts them back on a hive. I just extracted for the first time today (five gallons of yummy goodness!) and now I have to make the same choice myself. What does a wax moth look like anyway? I saw several moths come into the garage while working the honey boxes today and have never seen that kind of interest from moths before.

    This time of year, there are fewer flowers available and moths that eat (not all moths eat) will jump at the chance to get a taste of honey. They are usually significantly larger than wax moths.
