This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Extracting Demonstration

Uncapping Honey

Master Beekeeper Bob Sitko and Beekeeper Mike Wybierla explaining how to pull honey. 
Our annual extracting workshop was Sunday. Fifty beekeepers attended. It was a great time with everyone able to try a hand at uncapping frames of honey, extracting, filtering and bottling a jar to take home. The moisture content of the honey that we extracted was 16.4 percent. Very low moisture.
