In my quest for natural cell size i will be removing all the comb a few times from my hives. my question is this. what is the best way to save the pollen and honey so i can feed it back to the bees. i hate to waste all thier hard work. is their a way to give them back the wax so thay will re use it? i am familiar with crush and strain to get the honey out but i would like to save the polen as well

If you move the pollen above an exluder over the brood nest they may use it. Oherwise I have seldom seen them gather it from a comb outside the hive except in a pollen dearth. Honey, of course, they will gather anytime. Uncap and leave it out and they will empty it quickly in a dearth.
