I am first year beek and was given a 10 frame nuc this spring and they have built up fast and have some honey that I think is ready to go now. The girls are in one deep, three mediums, and a shallow and the shallow is about full of honey. So I need to make some room for them and would like to get some honey as well. The honey is capped.
My question . . .
Is there an alternative to purchasing a honey gate from a bee supply company? I have to pay 10.95 shipping for one. Is a honey gate a valve that would go by another name at the hardware store?
