I am trying to reduce the number of hives I have by combining hives. This is leaving me with extra brood frames filled with honey. If I open feed these frames to the bees at this time of year with honey supers on is that a bad thing to do? So i treat with soft chemicals, thymol, oxalic, and formic acids. So will that make open feeding them to the bees with honey supers on inappropriate? Or should I store the honey and wait until the honey supers are off to open feed those brood frames?
