I am a second year beek and have 5 hives. I thought all was well and went down to check the bees yesterday. One hive was empty other than yellow jackets. It was full of honey but there was ZERO brood. So, I have this question: What to do with the honey?
1. If is currently in the freezer. After 2 days do I store it in the garage?
2. Each frame is about 1/2 and 1/2 capped/uncapped honey. Will it ferment? Can I extract and use it?
3. If I save it with paramoth is the honey edible for the bees next year if I use them to start a new hive?
4. Once it has been frozen am I safe to just put the frames back in hive bodies, bag em up and wait for spring?
