Last year I used my vaporizer in the fall and of course had great results on no dead hives. I plan to treat again this fall (not the question, just the statement part)
Say the hive dies over the winter. Is the honey ok to consume in the spring? I know when you treat you are supposed to remove any supers, I think I would leave the box on that has their honey in it.
*the things you think of when you have a broken leg, sit on the back patio and stare at your beehives.
