When the void is fully clear of comb, what do you guys do about all the sticky honey that has coated everything? Leave it and seal the void?

I do my best to contain the mess as I work, placing heavy plastic or a tarp directly under the cutout to catch the running honey. This time of the year when the colonies are loaded and a lot of it is uncapped nectar, I'll throw old heavy towels down on top of the plastic to absorb as much of the spill as I can. Then just roll it up and pitch the mess when I am done.

Yes you should fill the void, no you should not leave any honey or comb behind. Roll fiberglass insulation I have found works best for me to fill the voids.
