Hey there! Here is the bottom line up front - Is it possible to extract honey from the frames, without destroying comb, and without using an extractor??
Of course, there is a reason I ask. My single hive crashed due to varroa. They left some frames of honey behind in the brood boxes which is the only silver lining to this.
But in light of this tradgedy - I don't want to destroy the comb, I want to save it, because I'll start with a new package in the spring and I understand if you can give them drawn comb, it gives them quit the head start.
Your thoughts and replies are greatly appreciated!!
