Bees Uncapping Honey Super?
I was checking on one of my hives to see if the honey super was ready to be taken off and harvested. Last I checked, which was about 2 weeks ago, they had about 50% of each frame capped. This time, it seems like they uncapped a little bit of it, without capping anymore. I gave one frame a good flick, to see if the nectar would come out, and it didn’t. So I know the moisture content is pretty low (from what I’ve read on the internet). I put a bee escape under the honey super. My question is will it be alright if I harvest it uncapped, with the moisture content seeming close to being ideal. I feel like if I wait any longer, it’s going to be too late (I read that mid September is the latest you should be harvesting).
A bee that won't stop eating will eventually become a little chub-bee
