I haven't had a real harvest yet, but I recently sneaked into my honey supers for the first time and took two frames that were capped honey. I left the rest of the supers intact...just wanted to taste my first crop. I don't have an extractor, but for two frames I just scraped them clean - honey, wax and all! I crushed and strained it and bottled 4 jars of very nice honey. I know. I know. I am told that I should have just cut the caps and left the wax so the bees don't have to make it again. My frames have plastic foundation. If I melt the wax I already removed and then bathe the plastic in the wax before replacing the frame in the super, will that be beneficial to the bees or just slow them down?
