As an experiment I left the Flow Super on over Winter. From memory the Flow had 3 frames about 30% capped and the other 3 perhaps 10%. I figured that the bees could use this over Winter and all would be good for Spring/Summer.
What I found was the bees uncapped and capped randomly on the frame I could see (didn’t want to open the hive) The status quo seemed to be maintained even though there was a lot of movement.
Over the last couple of months the rear observation window was starting to show more and more, what looked like crystallisation.
Sorry about poor quality pic.
I have now taken what honey would flow, as there is sufficient nectar and pollen about and the pic above shows what is left.
Not overly concerned at this time as I believe the bees should get to work and clean up all the cells.
Any comment? Seen this before?
