Before working with my 2 strong hives and 2 splits today, I'd made a list of what I needed to do for each (OAD-treat most, feed most, check for swarm cells, etc). Especially, I was to not OAD-treat my 1 hive with a honey super. Fine.
Maybe it was the heat, maybe the maddening several pissed-off guards that kept coming after me, whatever, but .... I treated the bottom 2 boxes of my honey-supered hive (the super is above box #3). I then realized my mistake, cussed some [at myself], and closed up that shop.
So: should I now write off that super? The hive's been oxalic acid-treated, so from what I hear, you can't really harvest from a treated hive.
Anybody aware of any (legal) alternatives -- other than just staying focused next time [if there is a next time]?
That was just 1 of several really amoeba-brained errors I made with The Girls today. I know they were glad to see me leave. Hell, even I was.
