Mrs Duckman and I have 2 bee hives. I've always wanted to do some beekeeping and were given one hive. Since then we have collected another swarm ourselves.
I am in the process of making a small honey extractor - but that is not my question. I've looked into one of the supers and the frames are developing nicely. I'd like to just take one frame out and extract the honey. What is the easiest and best way to do this?
I've been told that I can just break the comb into a bowl and put it into the microwave and heat on low. The wax is supposed to melt and separate from the honey.
Does anybody have any other suggestions?
Also if you have made a honey extractor I'd love to hear from you.
