Bee removals are not just transferring a colony from one location to another, there is much clean up after!! Besides sticky equipment, there is the unusable comb. When comb can be saved and reused inside the hive we do that.......but there is sometimes extremely soft or unusable honey comb that needs cleaning. Some people that do removals choose to feed it back to the bees by dumping it out in a pile for the bees to forage, I find that this encourages robbing, even when done over 100 yards from the bee yard. Plus for some that do removals, they do not have ability to place it even that far away from the hives. With that said, one way is to press the honey out and feed it directly back to the colony it came from. A bonus is that just that colony benefits from receiving their own honey back. This is the press I use with the affiliate link below.
This press is also very useful for those that use the crush and strain method when running Top Bar Hives.
