To All You Honey Seekers,
I just got into some of my hives today and discovered what seems to be a late honeyflow!!! This is exciting!!! I also went up to Keith and Svetlana Nuss' home this afternoon to find they have what I estimate to be between 5 and 8 gallons of honey. They started out with bare foundation this season and took my class in March. I would give them class champion if I were a judge at the fair!!! Now that we are having a real summer, I won't be so worried about the bees eating all the honey but I will be carefully looking for queen cells since the queens are all caged and the workers want a laying queen. When it drops off cold, then we will be pulling any final honey supers. I do have a manual extractor you can rent for $20.00 per day. It comes with a stainless steel strainer, decapping forks and a decapping knife.
