It seems I wrote this last week but forgot to post it so here we go:
Earlier in the week I had the opportunity to observe some fellow beekeepers pull honey filled frames and extract the honey. I don't anticipate having to do this myself this year. But just in case I thought it was important to start to learn how.
Pulling frames off the hive and removing the bees.
Using a warm electrical knife the cappings were cut off to expose the honey.
