    Dripping with honey? Is this an expression or an illustration of what is really happening, the combs are dripping honey? I'm confused and don't know why honey would be dripping from your combs.

    Just a saying. They ate full of honey and need another box. Still bringing in nectar and pollen like crazy. I should have a good month of good weather for the bees to.make more honey and get ready for the short winter.

    I was inspecting today, and nectar was dripping when I turned the frames over....maybe that is the source of such an expression.
