Re: How Can I Remove Crystallized Honey In Frame?
Any old honey goes right to the bees - be it too thick/crystallized or fermenting or moth infested - anything goes.
That is what big resource hive in the backyard does for me - cleanup jobs.
Nothing is wasted.
Right now they are drying the piles of accumulated C&S residue before I will melt it.
Try to mess up old honey frame by scraping it well; spray it really well with water; plug back in.
If this works - scale up the operation.
Figure out how make it work for you.
Seriously, it is much, much faster and more efficient to reprocess old honey and make it as good as new vs. harvesting diluted nectar.
Why people don't have the bees reprocess the old honey is beyond me.
It will become just as good as new, only needs some bee spit freshly added to it.
Remember, honey is natural sugar water with bee spit mixed in.
Let them redo the spit part.
