In the honey house

Now we come to the real point of beekeeping – when you reap the rewards of the girls hard work.  Hive World carries a range of equipment to make this job simpler and less messy.

Our useful uncapping tray holds the frame at an easy angle to allow the honey to drain into the large capacity tank.  You can slice the cappings off with either our electric or serrated uncapping knife.  Otherwise you can prick the comb with our uncapping roller (the best way with manuka) or use a capping scratcher.  This handy tool is also useful for checking brood health.  The latest aid is the turbo-pro uncapper.  This nifty tool tidily removes the cappings with the minimum of waste but the maximum of efficiency.

We have several different options in stock to take the effort out of extracting:

  • Electric Extractor –  4-frame tangential
  • 2 sizes of Manual Extractors – a 2-frame and a 4-frame model

You will find a strainer essential for removing bee bits and wax from your honey after extracting.  The nylon cappings strainer is useful for purifying the wax when melted as well as getting the dregs  of honey out of your wax cappings.  It is easy to hook this useful aid into your extractor and give it a whirl to speed the process up.

20L Pails with lid and honey gate are perfect for storing honey.  The pail perch is a nifty device which holds your pail until the last drop of honey drains out.  Hive World also stock a large 50L (70kg) capacity heated Honey Tank with thermostat and water jacket for accurate temperature control.

We stock nylon and stainless steel Honey Gates as well as the Original Robinet  Perfection honey gate from Thomas Apiculture in France which makes a very clean cut off with no drips.  Thomas also manufactures a large range of extractors, uncapping machines, honey pumps and processors suitable for commercial operations.
