    Default SHB larva on honey frame, will the whole batch ferment?

    Yesterday I extracted 8 frames of honey that I pulled off the hive last week. On ONE frame I found ONE larva of SHB. I cut out the section it was on and proceeded with the extraction. Now I'm wondering if I shouldn't have included ANY honey from that frame. Is my 40lb bucket of how ey doomed to fermentation ?

    Lord no. If that were the case, I would only have fermented honey — all 1000+ pounds of it a year. Relax Paula. One SHB larva is absolutely nothing to concern yourself with. Your hive and your honey will be fine. You do not have a problem.
