Extracting Honey

Extracting honey from the comb isn’t as hard as it looks. It’s simple if you know what you’re doing. I went to my mentor, Mr. H’s, house to extract the honey. We started the day off inspecting the hive to see if there was honey to extract in the hive.  We also did inspections on […]

A Story of a Migratory Bee
