When harvesting last week while shooting the Meet the Beekeeper series, I learned that it is best to not have open honey flowing into jars during the dearth. With so many hives in close proximity, the smell of the honey attracted a LOT of bees and cling wrap was no match for the girls.
I’m removing my Flow frames so my bees can store the upcoming fall flow in a traditional super that they’ll keep over winter. Before removing the Flow frames, I had to pull any uncured honey so, having learned a valuable lesson last week, this is what I did to remedy the situation.
1 1/4" outer, 1" internal diameter food-grade vinyl tubing and I’m sorry but I don’t know what the pieces I used as adapters for the lids are called
I used lids with rings so that won’t have to spin the jar or the whole lid when it’s time to switch jars.
