Apologies if this has already been answered, but I couldn’t find this by searching (although I’m sure I read something from @semaphore about this)!
We are now heading to Autumn in Perth & our bees have a full super each for winter & in addition a flow super with differing stages of drawing and filling. One of them is about 70% drawn, but about 80% capped of this & about 18% water - if that makes sense :). I will take photos next time I’m in, as this will explain it better.
We want to harvest this honey but I’m scared I will squash the bees that are working in the undrawn or uncapped cells. Is this likely to happen?
If it is I will remove the super before harvest, although this seems a very silly thing to have to do as my bees don’t like to draw out entire frames so this will be an ongoing issue into the future.
