1st year beekeeper. Apiguard question
So the instructions say not to have supers on the hive when treating. So ive been wanting to give my girls more space, so i was going to remove and harvest the super and replace with a second deep. And while they are expanding into their new home i would treat with Apiguard.
But i thought bees moved honey around sometimes. If i remove super and treat for 6 weeks, then put a super on, wont the bees move some of the treated honey into the super? My understanding is that the thymol makes the honey taste bad.
So can i not treat with Apiguard except during the winter or something?
