The good news is the techniques are not all that complicated and can be as simple as brushing the bees from the frames as you slink away. For more than a couple hives, a fume board and Bee Quick is the way to go.
An extractor works well for slinging the honey out of the comb, but if you only have a couple of frames, the crush and strain method works well and only requires a mesh strainer.
A little preparation and the right tools will make this a seamless process. The bottling bucket with a gate is your best friend (a ladle is not, trust us). The bottling bucket allows you to easily pour the honey into your jars.
