AS Michael mentioned,  as long as drawn running 9 frames in the honey is good option. I  run 8 in them and have yet to see a downside

As long as you have drawn comb it works fine.  It's not necessary, but it doesn't hurt.

Alarm pheromone is iso-pentyl acetate.  Artificial banana flavor is iso-pentyl acetate.  The main part of the smell of an actual banana is iso-pentyl acetate.  If most bees went crazy when smelling it, we would be in trouble every time a bee gave off any.  Luckily only the F1 crosses of AHB seem to do that lately.

I do foundationless frames and my idea was to complete my harvest early July then start feeding 1:2. I leave them enough honey for the year and use crush and strain so there's no stickies really. There's not often a fall harvest, at least I've never seen sufficient flow at my apiary to warrant it. I was hoping by feeding them 1:2 or 1:1 they'd be motivated to build comb. They might store some of it which would be fine, I could then pull alittle more honey come fall perhaps.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Apiguard with supers on
« Last post by tarjoadi on Today at 01:13:31 am »
Hi everyone,

Last year in autumn I done few Apiguard treatments and at the end was not able to find a tray in one of the hives. I was able to find it recently, long after I placed the supers which now are full with honey. I know that is not indicated to have supers on during an Apiguard treatment, but considering the treatment was last year in autumn, can I still use the honey?

Please let me know your suggestions.

Thank you
