A hive I purchased last month has a shallow super in the brood area.:scratch:

This man used no treatments so this comb has not been exposed to any kind of chemicals .

Can that super be put above a queen excluder and then filled with honey?

What are the pit falls of doing this?

I have read that frame used for brood are harder to uncap due to the cocoons left in the cells.

Are there any problem as it relates to the quality or safety of the honey produced in such a frame?



Thanks RKR

The darker stains from the brood comb come from the cocoons, etc. from the previously hatching bees.

It will make the honey darker, depending on how dark the comb is.

there will be no affect on the honey. it may appear darker because of the darker comb, but when extacted will be fine. good luck,mike
