A friend gave me a hive of bees last spring. i found plastic clear strips in the brood box. i assume it was for treating mites. the hive hadn't been worked for serveral years. i was afraid the honey might be contaminated. Last week i took the 10-frame shallow hive box full of honey, uncapped it, and put it back on the hive. Will they take the honey from the shallow uncapped cells, and take it down to the brood box? i was going into the hive tomorrow and see. the temperature is going to be in the lower 70's. I would like to remove the shallow hive box, and install it back in the spring.
