Well, I donno. I never realized that "freakin'" was a bad word. Kind of shocked me when I heard that when googled it was, I thought it only an expression, I use this word quite frequently, and I don't really swear all that much, just when I can't help it, smiling.
This is what I do, when I have some colonies to get honey from. I have my honey supers as deep, never migrated yet to any other size. I like the deeps, kind of stuck on things I guess.
When I go to take the honey frames, I have an empty super alongside that hive. That empty deep sits inside a telescoping lid. No bees can get in (usually I will have this set up in a wheelbarrow). I take out a frame, bump the frame, many bees fall off, I brush off as many as I can, quickly and sharply, one must brush in this manner, or you just REALLY irritate the bees. I place this frame inside that empty super and put my cover cloth over it. I do this as many times as required. I then take the wheelbarrow up to the house. Every now and then I go and lift the cloth cover off and the bees fly out. This is done as many times as required to allow the bees to head home. By sundown, there are no bees left in the super and I bring it in the house. When the bees have filled up on honey, they want to head home, as fast as their little wings can carry them. Works for me. I know there are easier ways. But when the colony numbers are not really great, and one has this bit of extra time, it works. Good luck. Have that wonderful day, love and live, with great health.
