The girls have been prioritizing the honey supers over their deeps all summer so I decided to pull them off even though there's still a flow at the moment here, hoping they will go back to stocking up the deeps for winter. They have fairly good stores there already, I just would like them to have more. I got about 17 medium frames of capped honey. I used a fume board with Bee Quick and it really didn't work all that well... It had rained all morning and even when the sun came out I could not get the board hot enough to have any real effect, they cleared off the tops of the frames, but that's about it, the bee brush had to take care of the rest, and boy did they hate that experience and let me know about it. I took the empty of bees supers around the house outside the kitchen where I left them for just a few minutes while I got back into my civilian outfit only to find they had found them almost immediately and they followed me into the house with them! They've never come in before, it took some doing but we were able to shoo them back outside where they peered in from the screen door with vengeance in their eyes :lol:. All told we got about 45 12oz bottles filled, but this honey does not smell all that great and the wife is worried we shouldn't really give it out. I don't think it's goldenrod, but it does smell a bit like dirty socks. I think it tastes great, the wife thinks it tastes like it smells. I put some in my tea this evening and it did make my tea smell a bit... off... but it tasted great. I still think I should use it and give it away as usual to family, friends, and neighbors. I'm still new to this, what do you all do with stinky honey?
