partial brood ok , when taking honey frames?
I have opted to remove frames of sealed honey from the 2nd box of my colonies since this is the first year and they didnt get the 3rd one completed. I will take the 2nd chamber and leave the top one for overwintering.
One frame had a round circle of brood in the center on one side.
A couple of questions/concerns:
-Is this frame extractable since I plan to manually uncap?
Would the spinning frame cause injury to those larvae?
I think I would like to swap out a more empty frame soon, with possibly no wax foundation present.
-Would this then mostly extracted frame be ok during overwintering?
-Any opinions on the value of this ~15% frame of brood to the colony?
I suspect those larva/bees would start chewing their way out of the capped brood cells, since I havent collected all of the sealed honey yet to extract. This may provide additional concern:), ouch!.
