Well, we are entering Fall in Michigan, USA and my Flow Super has been on for about 8 weeks. There has been a lot of bee activity up there but no visible honey :(. It is the first year of this hive and the bees had to draw new comb, so I am not too surprised about less honey–still sad. But now I have to take the super off in prep for winter. Should I drain whatever honey is up there (maybe mixed with nectar)? Can you harvest honey if it is not capped?
I fear they need what they put up there for winter food so I could “feed it back to them”, but how? I have two full brood boxes under the Super and the have a few frame of honey down there. Your experrt advice appreciated.
