I am 1 week in to the first apiguard application and i am using a super as an eke,
i have a couple of wet super frames i would like to feed back to the bee's, can i put these in the super while the apiguard is there, if so, can i use these frames in future for honey??

Many thanks :)

you are fine doing this - what you don't want to do is to treat any honey you are going to harvest. frames/comb are ok.

however...

you want to use as shallow an eke as possible while treating to minimise hive airspace volume. so hold off til after treatment to clean the frames.

Thanks, as the super is already on as an eke it might as well have a couple of frames in it for cleaning.

i guess these will help reduce the volume ;)
