These were combos of a removal and a swarm.

clear plastic pint or smaller honey jars

Afternoon,

Going with a building team to Mexico Wednesday and had the random thought about taking some of my honey with me. Sooo, anybody have a couple of clear, small plastic honey containers I might have/buy?

I assume it is available at the usual sources. Should I treat both even though the other one shows no sign whatsoever?
