Re: Is it safe to extract my honey?
Probably but if you want to be safe you should leave it. I don't know when your dearth is or how late your season goes where the bee's can collect nectar. Someone local to you would have a better handle on that. If you do take the capped honey, you can always feed later in the year to "top off" your hive. I would probably do that....take the capped honey now, monitor the stores as the year get's along and feed accordingly.
