These, the two Warre hives, were a bit more of a challenge.
Then we moved the tubs into the summer kitchen with the Langstroth hives and left the lids slightly open so the remaining bees could escape.
We still have two supers to harvest from the Warre hives--we decided we had done enough damage for one day and we would wait a few days so the bees could clean up the sticky honey mess. If it doesn't rain, we will harvest the rest this afternoon and Tom will show me how to use his equipment to extract the hony from the comb.
Thanks, dear bees.
