I was very happy to see a wild hive move into a barrel on my place this past spring, and enjoyed watching them work in my garden and trees throughout the seasons. Now I'm interested in getting some of the honey from the hive. Is this a good idea? Should I just leave well enough alone? Where I live, Leavenworth, Washington, USA, it will get down a little below 0 degrees F. in January. Also, I've only ever worked with honey from frames, and I'm not sure how to get the honey out of a wild hive without making a total mess. If I can manage to keep the hive alive for next year I'd like that, and I can set up a super and give them a better home. Where they are now they will most likely get buried under several feet of snow...should I move the barrel to a more protected area?
