    Yes, it takes skill to extract new drawn comb, but what do you do in a few years with the plastic foundation when it is contaminated with pesticides?

  12. Re: Will bees remove pollen from frames in honey super?

    The conditions in a cave seem to turn the pollen to dust.

    Setting back your supers by one bee space provides an upper entrance without the need for another piece of hardware.

    In the 1940's, Delta sold a radius cutter that would eliminate a few operations. I will try to find the part number. I am sure it is no longer available, but a used one might be searchable.

    I will second that. There where some smart people that came before us. Just because they did not have our knowledge, that does mean they could not think logically.

  16. Re: Will bees remove pollen from frames in honey super?

    Due to the possibility of pollen being contaminated with pesticides and causing problems later that are hard to pinpoint the cause, we do not try to use stored pollen.

    Re: How early can I pull the supers?

    Good deal. Generally, SHB do not survive well in our winters, but can hitchhike a ride in hives and packages from the South.

    All is well that ends well.

    Re: Comb Honey Foundation

    I believe the reason for "thin surplus" foundation is to improve the mouth feel of comb honey. It reduces the the percentage of wax you are eating.

    The choice is yours.
