I have done it! The other day I finally received the stainless steel honey extractor and time was coming to rob the hive.
The bees are such good workers that I got to give them something to do before they Swarm.
Anyone got advice as to how quick they fill the frames with honey and cap it?
Also, what is the smoker really for? I mean, my hive is so relaxed that the smoke just irritates them.
One last thing, what should I look for when I open the brood box... Is there risk of killing or losing the queen if she flies away?
