Pollen in Honey Super

1076 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Murdock
I have one hive that has 4 frames in the honey super where half of each side is filled with pollen and the other half has capped honey. It is packed with bee bread. Would I extract the frames? Will the pollen come out and be in the honey?
Thanks in advance!

Some of the pollen will come out. What type of foundation are you on? If plastic, this might be a time to do crush and strain. That way you can scrape off the honey and leave the pollen for the bees. Or maybe just leave those frames for the bees?
If you can, pull those frames and give them back to the bees after the flow. They can use these to make the winter bees. If you extract them the extra pollen will NOT hurt the honey.
