Hi all, quick question: I have quite a lot of honey in frames that got a bad attack of wax moth so froze them to kill the moth.
I would like to crush the comb and give the drained honey back to the bees but at this time should I dilute it at all before putting in the feeders of let them take it neat?
regards
pete.

I wouln't ... if you dilute it they will then have to drive the water off ... better to give it to them as it is and they will just take it down and store it.
