Counting my chickens before they hatch...I am thinking of how I will retrieve "my" first year's worth of honey. I have all Pierco frames (which my bees and I have been very pleased with). I have access to an extractor (about 20 minutes away). I am getting mixed messages about whether the drawn wax can survive an extractor--if it can't wouldn't crush and drain be the best method? I know everyone has their own opinions but all views are welcome. Thanks!
p.s. The only "medications" used are 1 treatment of terramycin and crisco patties with tea tree oil.
