Beekeeper Suit
Beekeeping is a very popular pastime, and obviously the main reason for the creation, maintenance and storage of a hive is the honey crop. You know that it's time to harvest honey (the month depends on your location in the world) when looking at a hive and find that the frames are full of honey comb and bees honey have been covered with wax plugs. It is time to remove and keep the super fourth bee proof before extraction.

When the super is filled with honeycomb decks will have to remove the honey bees that super. There are several commercially available chemicals on the market that make it easier. All beekeepers have to do is apply the chemical to smoke a joint or pad and place it on top of the super. When honey bees detect the product chemical targeting the bottom of the hive to the breeding or some super entirely below full. This leaves the track super covered honeycomb and bee free for harvest.

This product does not harm honey bees, honey bees, just find the smell offensive and get away from him. Other method used to clean beekeepers honey bees from a super is by using a panel crown with a Porter bee escape equipped. The Board is also more clear of Canada and the cone of facilitation, as well as CMB is drain if necessary. Using the method of escape can take 24 to 48 hours.

Now that you have removed the super you need to prepare the frames for extraction. The first step in this preparation is to remove the layers of wax that honey bees have been used to seal the honey in the comb. Many of keeping bees use between nine and twelve paintings in their hives, some modern hives take more frames. By using the correct number frames to suit your type of hive to honey bees enough space to get the comb to the edge of the frame, which then top right on the edge. This makes it easier to remove the earwax by cutting flush with the frame.

Beekeepers with a metal knife to remove the covers, The knife works best if the hot knife blade is, after all it is easier to cut warm wax, then cut cold wax. You can keep an eye keeping hot knife in hot water. A tall jug or pitcher covering the blade is ideal. If the container is metal and can keep as much heat best. Some beekeepers like to use your kitchen knife to remove the wax plugs of the honeycomb, while others prefer an electric knife that is designed just for beekeepers. Another method of removing the caps is through a fork uncover.

Once you have removed the covers from the comb honey is exposed, then you can use a cloth or a bag of effort or you could get a piece of gauze over an empty pot or container and place the cap cheesecloth wax honey leaks through the gauze and plugs bee wax to stay on the web. This wax can be processed in a solar wax extractor or in a boat vapor / smelter. Once the plugs are removed from the honey comb the honey is ready to be extracted. This can be done by placing the rack in upper bar (face down) on a tray or suspend the frame face down on a tray. The honey is drained out of the comb. The cells of the honey comb to be a slight shift toward the top bar. This is to avoid the honey is falling when it is deposited by the worker bees. This is not very efficient method, but is used as a last resort for some, if they can not have access to a pump.

Maybe it's better if you get a centrifugal extractor, his fellow bee keeper or local group, club or association. There are many models extractors I suggest you seek advice. Of course, you can cut comb honey in 16 oz, 12 oz or 8 oz rectangles rectangular cutters are available or can use a hot knife and cut your own boxes.
