I've been behind on many aspects, being a new beekeeper....
I pulled honey, very late... so then, the bees kept making honey and capped 3 full frames and a couple uncapped, which I was going to leave them. (I have 7 frames of bees in the bottom deep and ~5 frames of bees on the top.
So, being late with everything, including my Fall, Varroa treatment.
I pulled the Western, honey super off, Nov 1st and started feeding Fumagillin for Nosema and will continue the feeding through until the hive has taken in enough.
The pulled honey frames, w/honey: I put them atop two other Westerns and combed frames. I put a PDB (moth disc) at the bottom and have the Western, with the honey at the top. I only opened the moth disc packaging, just a bit, not fully.
I know that PDB is heavier than air... and the disk is in the bottom box, in the garage.
I've read that PDB is readily absorbed into the honey and makes it unfit for human consumption... And that some kinds of fumes will prevent the bees from using the honey.
Should I just let this box of honey air out for a day, or ??,,, Or can I feed them this honey/their honey?
