    Honey placement

    My question is about honey placement accoding to the type comb.....Will bees put honey in brood cells?
    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm curious.
    Thanks

    It has been done. Jars upside down in holes in the inner lid, covered with a super box and a lid on that.

    Well, I'll be dogged!....And I was only kidding. Bee folks ARE as inventive as I had hoped.
