Last of the Honey Supers for extraction

Monday, August 25th, 2014

These are the last of the honey supers (shallows or honey boxes), for me to extract that have come off the hives at the allotment. I’ve removed the last two supers, and I have one finally to remove from a hive.

Here are some pictures of capped honey comb, full of honey, before de-capping and extracting.

Each frame holds approx 2kg of honey. Approx 3-5 jars per frame.
