Honey extraction

SONY DSC

Not insects but a part of a beekeepers job.

There was a glut of honey one one of my hives , so leaving them a full super I took the second super off which held 11 frames of mostly capped honey.

A Super is the wooden box that holds smaller honey frames.

Then with a hot knife you cut the wax cappings off.

You then put it into the spinner which spins the honey out of the wax comb.

So out of 11 frames I got just over 20 bottles of honey (not all in photo).
