My Flow frames edging closer to harvest. Apis mellifera capensis + flow =
Guess what I’m doing this afternoon…
I got just over 4 litres/ 6 kg of honey from two frames!
I had to cover the operation with Glad wrap (sad wrap) as I had about 15 bees belly-flopping into the jar. Some of the curious ones even flew into the key slot!
Wowzers!!! Gorgeous. Well done!!
Do you know if you got any honey leaks onto the brood? I had a bit of a theory that with wet caps, you get more leaking. Then I turned my thoughts towards caps that are close to the mechanism, such as the caps at the bottom of the bottom photo are. I wonder if you got any leakage there.
