Bill shows program attendees a frame of honeycomb.

Bill places the frame in the extractor. They have a newer and faster extractor home that allows them to extract 20,000 pounds of honey in three weeks, Bill explained. Before the newer technology, he said it took three months to complete that amount of work.

Bill said a bee's lifespan is typically 30-35 days. It takes 12 bees a lifetime to make one tablespoon of honey.
