The spout on your extractor looks upside down. It should open from the top, instead of the bottom.

Did you build the hive or buy it?

Your spinning it wrong you need to spin it slower and the honey comes out way better to if you spin it slower too

Holy molly, you can improve the spinning thing with a High KV Brushless Motor, a nice ESC and some Lipo batteries...

It's been awhile since you've posted this video, but I was just wondering what do you do with the wax that you collect? Can you make candles with it?

As a beekeeper I say a silicon spatula is one of the most important tools to extract honey 🐝

luggie111 (1 month ago)
Maddy, just one observation, your hair got very close to the spinning shaft of the 'spinner', please tie you hair up so you don't get it caught, maybe a beehive style appropriate :)

How to harvest honey from beehives...... 1. Get out your cell phone. 2. Call a professional honey harvester. 3. Agree on a price for his/her services. 4. Turn him/her loose and let him/her harvest the honey for you.

It was real fun to watch how you made the honey! Always wondered how it was really done. Thanks a lot for showing us. Btw - I especially liked the fact that you "only took the excess honey as the bees need it in the winter". Cool!

I'm not a bee keeper at all and I'm not actually sure how I got to this part of YouTube. but please tie your hair back using the extractor. Seen way too many incidents of people getting scalped with spinning machinery Other than that awesome video keep it up :)
Barry Yog Sothoth (3 months ago)
You've probably picked this up by now, but instead of brushing the bees, just give the frame a sharp shake

Calum Grigor (5 months ago)
So much going on there Maddie. You love your bees that's brilliant. Warm your frames in a greenhouse or car in the sun when you harvest on a cold day. The honey will flow much better and you will soon out your frames easier without wrecking them either! I run 28 hives in Germany and my kids love you on CBeebies
Calum Grigor (5 months ago)
Also take off all the honey and replace it with sugar water - hives overwintered on sugar water have fewer issues with nosema. (Especially those overwintered on dark honey)

Thank you for this. My 4 year old honey bunny loved it. Sorry but you really are a honey and I’m not a pervert as I’m happily married. Keep winning
Martin Mikusek (5 months ago)
Hi, I like your enthusiasm :-D I would suggest you gently extracting the one side (slow rotation) and then (againt gently) the second side of the frames. It will help to reduce the weight. After that you can rotate it faster to extract the honey left there on both sides. It will help to not destroy the frames and the bees will not have the lot of work to repair it. I have had the manual extractor for two years. It was pain in the butt :-) I put some motor here (max rpm is 500) and put some regulation. Now extracting the honey is much more pleasure and fun :-) But I have 19 hives now so maybe for two hives it is not necessary.
PaulJBarrs (5 months ago)
I have watched a load of YT videos on how to extract honey, Bee Keeping basics and the like.  This one is by far the most entertaining.  Nice one Maddie, another subscriber right here.
I reckon ye should invest in a small motorised electric honey extractor. 👍
Caelia (6 months ago)
Oh I'd love to have a bee hive. I don't have a huge garden like that though
Tim James-Hammond (6 months ago)
Awesome video. Can you tell me what you did with the frames after the honey was extracted? Clean up, pop them back to hive? Thanks so much.
Zach Kaczkowski (3 months ago)
Tim James-Hammond sometimes what you can do is leave them near the hive and the bees will clean it up for you, but that only works when you have a very strong hive. Usually you have extras to pop in while you are extracting honey thought.
Brandon Brand (6 months ago)
Really cool, thanks :)
You should prewax your foundation otherwise you will get always this owful comb built on the plastic. Apply more wax on the plastic foundation!
Zach Kaczkowski (3 months ago)
Пчеловодство и Садоводство для каждого don’t use plastic starters it’s not good for the bees
Dante Uribe (7 months ago)
Hey, Maddie, what do you and your mum do with the left-over wax? :)
Zach Kaczkowski (3 months ago)
Dante Uribe you usually make candles or lip balm with it or you can sell it as well
Isabell Hanke (7 months ago)
hey Maddie...i love your Videos, but this is not the korrekt way to harvest honey. you spin it sooo fast...and then did you have broken frames.- and the bees have much more work.

The London Mapper (2 months ago)
Wow - i did not know that. Thanks...
Barry Yog Sothoth (3 months ago)
Also, large brand honey tends to mix honey with cheap sugar syrup from China. If you ever see the word 'blended' on a honey label, it means it's not pure honey
Zach Kaczkowski (3 months ago)
AllGoodThingsNetwork yes, much better. The honey you buy at the store usually is called clover honey which means that they only let the bees pollinate clove plants and it is virtually tasteless compared to the honey from free roaming bees

Maddie Moate (10 months ago)
Disclaimer: My mum and I have been keeping bees for 3 years, are both well read and have completed beekeeping courses, but we are by no means experts. We are "hobbyist" beekeepers and try not to interfere with the bees too much. We welcome any advice and tips from fellow beekeepers and always recommend getting a second opinion as our knowledge is limited :-)

Hi Maddie, vedio is very much informative... Am from India. Could you please help me to get the same dress you use for bee Harvesting. I have 4 to 5 bee boxes and do not have the proper equipments to extract honey. Please help me on that.
CrankyPants (2 months ago)
Maddie Moate Fresh, homegrown honey is amazing, isn't it? Great job on the harvest. Do you do anything with the wax that you removed from the frames? I've seen candles made from it, but it looked pretty time-consuming. While it would make a good bee/honey-related video, I don't know if it would be worth all of the time spent. You and your mom are doing great with the bees. Thanks for sharing the videos with us. -

Never wear leather gloves and work honey bees, THEY ONLY STING EM, and can sting threw them too! WEAR THICK RUBBER GLOVES OR BARE HANDED i wear thin rubber gloves! when they bump em! wash em off in plain water and go rite back to work The thick chemical rubber gloves they can't sting threw Thin ones yes! but its rare
Stress Ball (11 months ago)
I am curious if bees use the same frame for laying eggs (growing larvae to pupae) and for honey storage. because in those frames pulled out from the hive, they were all honey.
frankbravura (11 months ago)
Yes they do use the same frames for brood and honey or pollen unless you put the honey frames in separate box on top of the brood box called honey super with a queen excluder between the boxes to prevent the queen from laying eggs in the honey super. Hope it helped!
talala tilili (11 months ago)
the first hive didnt a good work in building the wax, you need to set frames closely to each other to avoid this..and they also build wax on the top of frame witch mean that they need more space..

Reckless Roges (11 months ago)
Have you tried producing cut-comb? Watching you battle with that extractor makes me think honey-comb production might be more up your street.
Balen Mars (11 months ago)
you know, in some cultures they eat honey with the wax, I tried it too, it's great
Zach Kaczkowski (3 months ago)
You can also chew it like gum
Maddie Moate (11 months ago)
Oh really? I know some people will buy honeycomb to spread on toast, so I guess there are bits of wax in it then!
RunSlagathorRun (11 months ago)
how in the world is it possible that you have been producing Discovery Channel quality videos consistently for THREE YEARS and only have 21k subscribers? seriously, your personality is that of the ideal TV host. you really need to market this channel. more. i cant imagine any other reason why you have less than 1 million subs.
Maddie Moate (11 months ago)
Thank you very much, please do spread the word! Slowly but surely I think my TV audience are finding us here, so we are getting there!

Wow bees make a lot of extra 🍯!
Gordon Maurer (11 months ago)
Your gate valve on the extractor is up=side down.. Just turn the cover so the handle is on the left side. When you open the valve the handle will be lifted away from the honey flow.
Maddie Moate (11 months ago)
Noted! Thank you!
Evie Goes Wild (11 months ago)
loved the video. Found it shocking how all the effort from spinning the extractor and the you pulled out the frames which had only just started dripping honey 😂 it seems that honey making is a bit of a work out 😂😂
