Harvesting Puget Island Honey

Today we started the process of harvesting honey this week. As you can see there is and escape board placed under the first two honey supers. When the bees leave the super at night to protect the queen they can’t go back up into the supers because the escapes are one way. Tomorrow I will remove the frames of the top two supers and then place the escape board under the last supers on each hive. By midday Saturday all the honey should be harvested.
More to come.
