Hi there Flow Hivers,
I have a Flow super and I’ve done an extraction from one frame that went perfectly. What I am noticing however is that there is some build-up of honey (or even nectar I imagine) in the reservoirs at the bottom of the frames. It seems my girls probably haven’t waxed up the frames enough to completely seal the cells. See this picture…
If it is honey, then I’m not too worried. But my concern is that it is nectar and may ferment in there. So I took off the draining caps, inserted the pipe to dislodge the propolis and replaced the caps to let it drain a bit into the hive and let the girls clean it up, it was a cloudy drizzly day, they didn’t have much else to do.
Was this the right thing to do?
