Honey Extraction Tutorial Day at the Bee Club October 2015
Today, 25 Oct 2015, we are harvesting honey from the club hives. The first Extraction of the year.
We got a a total of 35 Kg today. We were expecting a little more but some frames had Brood in there. Some of the Hives were a little on the weak side so we decided to leave them be. Hopefully they will grow in numbers later in the year, so they can complement the other healthy hives.
The video shows some members of the club uncapping the wax from the honey frames. We then put the frames in the extractor which spins the frame full of honey. the honey gets flung out of the frame on the inside walls of the extractor to collect down the bottom.
