I still have medium honey supers on top of two double deep hives. They are partially filled with capped honey from the late Golden Rod flow. My deeps are in good shape in regards to weight so I just want to pull the mediums off for the winter and extract the honey for me.
One of the supers still has a lot of bees in it. Forecasted high temps are low 50ís at best in the next couple days and then 40ís and lower after that. I was hoping these low temps would drive the bees down out of the supers.
What is the best way to clear the bees from the super with these temps?
Also, Iíll freeze the partial frames and not extract them. If I donít have enough freezer space for all of those frames what other options do I have?
