We are grateful you are here

I drowned a bunch of my forager bees and I feel horrible about it.

Last weekend was our first extraction. The process was messy and left bits of honey on everything. My mentor advised me to put everything out in the yard and let the bees lick up the remaining honey. Well, there was enough honey in one of my containers and in the spinner barrel to pool at the bottom. Now the bees are literally drowning in the honey trying to clean/eat from the container and spinner.

I feel awful watching them struggle to stay on top of the honey before losing and sinking down into it to inevitably drown in the stuff.

I don't want to clean my equipment this way again.
