uncapped stores

Nectar is gathered by the bees at 80% moisture and needs to be reduced to 20% water in order to prevent fermentation. Whilst the moisture is being reduced the ‘stores’ are held in open cells and is known as ‘uncapped stores’. Once the moisture has been reduced then the cell full of honey will be sealed, capped with wax.
