I feel lucky not to have seen any SHB yet, but they are inevitable in my area. So I have a question for those who are very familiar with battling SHB in traditional hives.
In the past, it has been my habit to remove supers (non-Flow) and keep them for up to a week while I set up my honey extraction area. My local mentor says that he has spoken to SHB-infested commercial guys, and they can’t do that. They need to do same day extraction, or they risk the supers getting slimed out or full of larvae. Is that likely to be true? I just want to know what might be coming.
