    Last month I pulled 4 supers off and put them in the garage to wait for extracting. I didn't have a spare cover to put over them, so I made sure they were on a flat surface and stacked them and covered them with an empty feed sack secured with duct tape... :shrug: :shrug:
    imagine my suprise today when I went to get them for extracting and there were bees flying out from under the feedsack. :flame: I went from 4 supers to 8 frames of honey. :Bawling: :Bawling: :Bawling:
    Oh well, at least they left me 8 frames. :baby04:
