I'm sure this has been addressed before, but here goes. I have numerous frames of last years capped honey in my hives. It looks to be pretty "solid". Should I Uncap it and feed it back to the bees to be "reprocessed" or should I try to extract it? Or should I leave it near the brood for food? Thanks.

All three are viable options. What do you want to do? What will you do if the bees don't empty the combs?

If you want to feed it back to the bees, I would recomend against uncapping it. That might make a big sticky mess, which would drown/trap aot of bees. Just place the frames in the colony.

On the other hand, if you want to process the honey for yourself, by all means do so. If it was just a few frames, a crush and strain would be a good option.
