Section Honey

There are several different kinds

Section honey is where small pieces of comb have been drawn and filled with honey into some form of container that has been placed in a hive by the beekeeper for that purpose. That is about as good as I can describe it.

Sections take a variety of forms, including the traditional wooden frames that are either square or oblong, depending on the country of origin. In the U.K. and Ireland they are 4¼ inches square. There are a number of proprietary plastic versions produced, but to the best of my knowledge all are for Langstroth hives. There are also round sections and there have been a number of designs of these produced too.

There are specially designed section racks, or supers, that take a number of sections, although there can be a small number placed in hanging section frames.
