After extracting last week, I took my wet supers and put them on the hives over the inner cover for the bees to clean up. I left them on for three days, and checked them. I'm not sure if they had not finished cleaning, or were storing nector in some of them, so I left them on for a few more days. I went back this morning, and took them off thinking that was enough, any longer, and they may store in them. Some of the frames still had uncapped honey in them. I took them anyway.

1)Can I store these supers with some uncapped honey in them. Will the moth crystals hurt the honey. 2)Should I extract the little bit thats in there and feed it back to them. 3)Should I leave the super in my yard for them to rob out, (I think this may start robbing behavior).

Thanks,,, Charliebuck

Yes the moth crystals will affect the honey.

If some are dry and some are wet, I'd sort them out and put the wet ones back. Maybe there is still a flow on and they want to store stuff in them? Is there room below for the honey or is it all full already?
