If a flow frame isn’t 100% capped and is then cracked open for extraction, would the pressure of honey flowing down the inside of the flow frame be enough to force honey out of the uncapped cells and into the brood box below?
I extracted honey today from two frames which looked to be fully capped (see first pic). About ten minutes after I turned the key, I had honey flow out of the bottom of the hive and around the coreflute. (See second pic)
Honey out of bottom of brood box.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
