So, let's go out to the hive and see what's going on.
Now that you are pulling frames of honey from your bees hard work, it's time to start your harvest.
First, make a plan. Get your supply list together and in the truck or wagon, so you are ready at the hive. Be prepared to sweat since you'll be there awhile.
Beyond my normal gear: gloves and netting; my list includes the following: cooler that will hold full frames; wagon, so I don't have to carry the cooler; frame holder; alligator pliers to grab frames, extra fuel for smoker; self-lighting propane torch for quick lighting of smoker.
I also bring a bucket with a few frames just in case the harvest is light.
Until next time, see you around the hive!
