24 The Sweetest Gold

The Sweetest Gold

Posted on June 29, 2010 by team

This gallery shows the process of extracting honey from a hive. Though these beekeepers are just the beginners they managed to extract 70kg of honey this year being stung only twice.

Only at first sight their work seems to be easy: checking beehives in a protective suit …

In fact they have to know very much.

They always need a lot of such frames: bees swarm and it’s necessary to catch them and put in a new hive, and hives fill up very quickly.


On the frames they span a wire and fasten unrefined beeswax.




Sometimes they make “two-storied” hives.

    And to think something that comes from an animal but tastes so good :))

    Bee spit…yummy

    Got milk? Eggs? Caviar?

  7. Joel says:

    I like the picture of the bees living “outside” the frame. You just can’t put a frame into living beings and except to never go outside the limits, you just can’t =D and tha’s the beautiful part I guess.

    Now it’s Bee porn. ER, you continue to entice and titillate me.

  9. Emiel says:

    We have a new phenomenon here! People were bitten by bees, I’ve never heard of that before.

    Maybe russian bees evolved into a whole new species of biting bees? Here they just sting.

  10. Testicules says:

    Yes they did. They have tiny little bee teeth.

  11. DouglasUrantia says:

    The bees have an interesting political life. The Queen, her male harem of lovers, the workers, the drones, the slaves, the guardians of the hive, the nursemaids for the baby bees.

    Seems to run like clockwork because they have no individual personality like us humans do. The bees do all this work for free and then we eat the fruits of their labor on our biscuits. Now I’m hungry….;))

    A. Bunka here, Douglas makes an interesting point if people followed orders like the bees, communism would have worked.

    • perristalsis says:

      In a way a hive is communist; if you serve no useful function, you get “liquidated”. The males, once having fertilized the queen, are superfluous, and are destroyed.

    Sweet (if you pardon the pun)!

    Bees. Yipe, bees. After reading this, every phantom itch or hair is probably a BEE on me!! Bees!!

  15. Chris says:


    I looove bee poo!!!

  16. George Johnson says:

    Most people don’t realize how good honey is for you. Probably one of the best things you can eat. Also good for wounds too.

    But they better find out what’s killing off the bees, or we’re gonna be in a world of hurt!!

    • Cracker says:

      I think that idea that bees are dying off is a leftist plot. I was very alarmed when I first heard about it, however there is no shortage of bees at my house. Same amount of bees now as there were in the 70’s.

  17. Musa says:

    I don’t see Bees as often as I use too!

    I was alarmed when I heard that myself.

    I have been mindful of them ever since.
    I don’t know where you are but I am in Virginia.

    Maybe it’s different where you live?

    Bees are definitely cool! :)
