Extracting


I pulled off my first four supers. Wow!! So heavy!!! Anyway, my friends and I decided to extract it right after we pulled it off of the hive. It’s been pretty fun but it’s also been pretty hard. Luckily, we are doing it in an eighty-six degree garage! This makes the honey run about seven-bagillion times faster. Unluckily, manual labor in that kind of heat is killer. So, right now as I type, we are approximately half way done. We have spun about eighteen frames. That is almost two of the supers.

The best is when I find a live bee on the frames. All of my friends are scared of bees, so they kind of freak out, It’s pretty awesome!

So, I’ll talk to you all later! Post more when I finish.
