  1. Re: Gear for melting out honey directly from frames

    @ Bernhard

    How about cleaning the press when done with honey extraction? Has it been difficult for your friend to clean the wood? I'm assuming there's a filter bag the comb is put into.
  2. Re: Gear for melting out honey directly from frames

    Wow! I looked at this thread for the honey press photos, and I am sensing some serious tension here! Thanks for the entertainment. I'm going to press my honey out :)

    Homemade honey press?

    I'd like to make a honey press similar to this one 12783, at least this general idea. Has anyone else made one of these? Any leads on where to score the stainless steel mesh piece? Other ideas?

    My bad, naturally defensive :o. I really just wanted to see how far they were and see if they needed another box. Also wanted to check in on honey stores while I was in there. I watched a video of...

    Ah! Slight twist..great advice thank you!
    How often do you personally go through the hive? And if the boxes have honey would you harvest them now or put them back on and wait until fall-ish?

    Re: Opening hive, check, more advice?

    I definitely had a game plan! I would not open it just to open it, since that goes against the whole warre principal. It's just that once I was in there, the game plan changed due to what I saw,...

    Dead carcasses outside hive??

    Went looking at the hive today and noticed some dead bees outside the hive, also half dead carcasses and some woozy looking bees. Looked like the bees couldn't fly. They are lighter in color and...
  16. Re: Bees Seem to Be Going A Bit Crazy After Adding Boxes Yesterday

    I would think also, you just gave them a lot more space, they need to get used to it. It would make sense to me that things would be a little hectic for a day or so. Also, why did you add two boxes?...
