HI

Stolen from another site!

I think this is a great idea and somthing I will try this year. But I also think it could be imporved for ease of access to the comb honey as chunk by using plastic trays in place of the jars.

I wonder If the bees could learn to stick the labels on as well?

Hi

It's not an easy way of doing it at all, the little b%$&^(*$? hate working in those jars as much as sections:boxing_smiley:


A bit of insulation packed around the jars and a hive with plenty of bees helps,

Silly question, i understand how you clear bees from a super but how would you clear them from the jars, guess you would have to have a super underneath and clear both at the same time.
