Library Bees Update – Comb Honey

The hives at the library are healthy and active.  The bees are storing honey in the shallow supers.   We will extract that honey later this summer.  I installed a comb honey super (Ross Rounds) on one of the hives today.   The hive is strong and the nectar is flowing so if we are going to try to get some comb honey, it is now or never.  Generally comb honey is best produced only during periods of nectar flow.  The super contains all of the plastic pieces and foundation for making round comb honey sections.   This type of comb honey is called a Ross Round.
