    Default Honey in a Jar

    Hope this pic is uploaded correctly. Eight wide mouth jars and four narrow mouth bottles were mounted on/in a 3/4 inch piece of plywood and fitted on top of a single deep and three standard supers. the jars were covered with a empty super box and a flat top. The hive was augmented by removing an adjacent hive allowing the field bees to drift into the jar hive packing it pretty good. This was in late spring. Recently I have started taking the jars. The jars have a single 1 x 4 inch strip of foundation glued to the jar bottom as a starter strip hanging in the jar.
    The bees came this spring from BWeaver, The extra field bees are from HoneyBee Genetics (Old Taber bees).

    NICE I like how the bees keep "bee space" around the comb now fill it with light honey.

    some one was calling it "Jar-O-pac"

    Yes, I got the idea and method from The Fat Bee Man and his vid. Sorry for not giving credit in first post.
    This has probably been done many times in many places.

    Will use for friends at Christmas. Just a "see if I can do it deal". I don't think I could sell many. Hey, I only have three hives!
