So in the Mid-west (where humidity is high in the summer and lower in the fall) can most moisture concerns be avoided by leaving the honey on the hive until humidity is lower? Does anyone have any idea how long this may take?
I have been following this moisture issue through various threads all summer and I think I have had an epiphany. I have been wondering why capped honey would be more than 18.6%? It didn't make sense. Now I'm thinking it may matter less to the bees because by the time they plan to eat it humidity will be lower and it will have dried post-capping.
