I know that beekeepers with lots of hives that are into bee production (not honey production) pull the honey out of the hives for maximum bee production. Most I hear on videos say they feed it back to the bees,usually in the fall (also make splits with them). I've heard people say they put the frames in the freezer. I assume that would be just to keep bugs out of it until they need it and to preserve the uncapped honey. Do beekeepers extract the honey right then to feed it back to the bees in the fall and if so how is it fed back to the bees? I could see ending up with a lot of honey if you keep pulling it out of the hives. If I pull frames of honey and intend on using it for splits within a couple weeks would they still have to be put in a freezer?
