Honey supers on top of hives to let the bees drift out. This photo was taken in Western Queensland while the bees were on a Yapunyah honey flow. The bees will not even attempt to rob the honey back and will all drift out of the supers in about 4 hours. This is one of our winter flows and the photo was taken in early August. The average rainfall in this area is only 275mm (11 inches) per year.
