In this video, we show you how to solve a relatively large problem in a simple way – beekeeping 101. Although this relates to beekeeping as we dispose of old timber frames, it also applies to anyone burning anything (reused old timber perhaps) that may contain staples, nails or screws within it.
Beekeepers often have old frames that are no longer usable for what ever reason. So long as they are timber or wooden, they are fine to use as fuel for fire. HOWEVER, what about the steel or magnetic metals like the staples, nails, screws, eyelets and wires? Don’t they end up in the ashes? YES, they do, which means you can’t use the ashes in your garden or compost. Watch this video as it explains a simple way to overcome this problem. STEP by STEP. It can save you money and reduce your chance of a serious wound or injury or even exposure to a serious tetanus infection. Using a simple yet effective solution we remove all these risks. Find or purchase a strong rare earth neodymium magnet, relatively strong (easily available on ebay for a few dollars), and mount it onto a non/magnetic aluminium, plastic or wooden rod. After a few trials, I found it best to place the rare earth magnet into a small plastic cap, which protects it from getting dirty or damaged, and it makes it much easier to remove the metallic debris. Really simple, fast and cheap to make, yet it saves lots of time and money as you can re-use your ashes in the garden.
