I 'm in a Catch-22. I have 2 supers on a very active hive, the top one is 90% capped and is very heavy.
I want to put a 3rd one on, and under the heavy one. the problem is that sucker is so heavy I really want to just take it off.
The issue is that I don't want to have to do extraction twice, since I borrow equipment, and I only have the one hive.
How long can I store a honey super in my dry, temp controlled basement? I am hoping to take the other supers off by 3rd week in June. The nectar flow will probably be done by Mid June.
