During other low humidity dry seasons
pulling frames as low as 70-75% capped is possible.
NOT this season, waiting for 90-95% lowest filled honey frames.
THEN going straight to honey house with De Humidifier running
After uncapping and extracting
Settling tanks or buckets should be covered to prevent moisture absorption.
