How do you mean - tips?

Just get tangential screens if you have a radial extractor?
Put them in a tangential extractor?

Make sure the frames are fitted the right way round in both cases.

Use another method (crushing , pressing, shredding, chopping, scraping, etc).

Is this OSR honey? - if so, the tip is 'get it off soon'.

You could get it moved into shallow super frames, I s'pose.

You could even keep some for winter stores, if you are that way inclined.

Tell us a little more.

Regards, RAB

will hopefully be doing the same myself later this year as a hive i look after only has brood sized boxes.

I was told it was a case of uncap it and let it drain out in a warm area over saucepan? Hope it is a straightforward as it sounds!!
