Spilled honey back of my SUV
« on: June 03, 2022, 09:37:25 pm »
Case of buckwheat fell over and the back of my Suv is now covered with about 2 quarts of honey. Would a wet vac be a good solution (don't own one) or can someone suggest another way to clean this mess up ?

I have found a wet, squeezed out rag or small bath towel to be best. Wipe and pull up in one direction. Thoroughly rinse as you go.
Mild soapy water and a brush used to scrub the stained area, and dry towel clean.

Park it near your hives and open the back, the bees will soon sort it out for you. :smile:

As per what Nigel said but bee aware, you will have a lot of dead bees when you are done. Bee sure to remove them quickly. They can really stink. If you could put something they could land on, like two inch stones it would save a lot of bees from dying.
The bees will clean it up better than you can but only if you don?t have a strong flow on.

That is true if the honey is puddled up, and it may very well be in the back of a pickup truck. I dropped a quart once on the concrete and did not attempt to retrieve it. It spread out thinly and the bees cleaned it up without losing many bees, actually very few. All that was left behind was the broken glass.
