Feeding Bees with Scraped Honey

It’s April 2019 and I’ve deleted the original post from 2012 except for this photo because there’s really not much to see or talk about.

Sometimes in the fall when I have left over frames of honey that the bees didn’t fully draw out, I scrape open the capped honey and place it over the inner cover so the bees can take the honey into the hive for winter. The photo shows one frame, but I often do it with supers full of partially capped honey. That’s about it. It’s just another method of feeding the bees before winter.
