    Default Can you manipulate bee-o-pac frames?

    I'm curious if you can move the frame from the outer box to the center to aid in getting more complete fill on those oft neglected frames? I've heard the plastic isn't very strong so not sure if this would work.

    Default Re: Can you manipulate bee-o-pac frames?

    I wouldn't say you couldn't. Bee-o-pac are a bit tricky to manipulate and harder when full. It might be easier to just harvest what is full first, move any partially filled to the center and add empty to the sides. Besides as long as you're in there, sooner is better than later for harvesting comb honey. If you leave it and they coat it with that yellow substance, the comb will get tough. You want to "get it while it's white."
