Sometimes when the nectar flow ends, the honey is extracted, and the season is over there may still be partially capped honey, and/ or uncapped nectar filled super frames remaining. Some folks will try to reduce the moisture by using a dehumidifier to dry the nectar and then capture the honey. Typically, I'll keep these partial frames for the next season. I just stick them in the freezer until the really cold weather comes then move them into supers in the garage for cold weather storage making sure to protect against mice or wax moth. When the new beekeeping season begins the frames have thawed and I can pop them on to any hives that may need feeding.
