20 frames of capped honey ready to be harvested.
In this video Cam explains and then demonstrates how to use the cold knife to cut the caps off the honeycomb.
This is a frame of honey after we’ve removed the caps. The bees put caps on the max honeycomb in order to store it for future use – such as Cam and Mr. Combover eating it.
The right tools make all the difference. This time we used the proper cutting knife to uncap the honey and it was far more effective, efficient, and caused less harm to the comb, which means that the bees will have an easier time re-filling again.
Cam and Mr. Combover check in on their bees to make sure everything is in order for the winter, and WOW!! what is this they find? An entire Super capped with honey. The bees have made another 30 lbs. of honey in just one month. Mr. Combover is investigating whether to submit to Guiness Book of World Records! Now the big decision is whether to harvest the 30 lbs. for themselves.
