With this possibly prolonged crappy weather around us and "possibly" likely to linger into next week, i wondered if any of the other Langstroth users knew roughly how long a std lang brood frame full of stores would last a full hive ?

Just trying to guage in my head how long each hives stores will last.

Any guesstimate will probably be more accurate than mine.

Frame would have some three to four pounds of stores. Five to seven days as there is probably more honey in there (brood box) than you think
