Lets look at how the honey boxes are escaped (bees removed) for extraction.

Each of the honey boxes weighs 30-40kg! – That’s the box, frames, wax and honey. You don’t want it to also be full of bees.

If the bees are taken away from their hive, they wont know how to get back and they will die!

The escape boards will be left on overnight so the bees can all move from the ‘pantry’ to the ‘living room’.

Below is what you want to be removing from the hive. Not a frame full of bees.
