    Default Extracting honey for comb

    I did my first cut out and got a nice hive. I got about 25lb of honey. How do I extract the honey using a honey extractor? I know they are for frames but this is just the honey comb. Thanks for help, Neil

    If would just crush and strain.

    Congrats on your first cut-out!

    MB nailed it, crush and strain.
    One idea for you- on cut-outs where there isn't much honey, I give it back to them but above the crown board in an empty box. Orient the comb in an incorrect fashion so they don't reuse it.
    After you strain out your comb, you could feed back the crush to them in similar manner.

    Thanks a lot for the advice. I'll give it a go.
