    Default Robbing supers

    I think I'm going to be able to harvest some honey. However most of the frames have been 95 percent capped for several weeks, some closer to a month. That last 5 percent they just won't cap, is this normal? What do I do, if anything?

    I usually don't worry about a small percentage that's uncapped. If it's most of the frame, that's a different story. If you want to be sure, you can shake the frame down and see if the open cells empty out. If they do, it was mostly nectar. If not, it's much closer to honey and you'll be fine.
