Two Things To Be Prevented

When the boxes are free from the bees, two things are to be prevented,

if we wish to save our honey till cold weather. One is to keep out the

worms, the other to prevent souring. The last may be new to many, but

some few of us have had it caused by dampness in warm weather. The

combs become covered with moisture, a portion of the honey becomes thin

like water, and instead of the saccharine qualities we have the acid.

Remedy: keep perfectly dry and cool, if you can, but dry at any rate.
