This is my first year beekeeping and my bees did not make it through the winter : ( We believe it was a matter of a wet hive.
We want to harvest the honey that was left - some frames are full while other are only partially capped. I want to remove all of the honey as we no longer have bees we can return it to -- and it won't be until next season that we try again.
Is there a way to harvest these partially capped frames? Is there a reason why I should NOT put them in an extractor?
Please advise - thanks!
