Here's what I've done so far. After I open up the hive, I smoke the super while still in place on the hive. I remove the super and set it down near the hive on a concrete block I have ready. I place an empty super back on the hive and close the hive up again. I carry the super with the honey away from the hive a hundred feet or so, set it down on another concrete block and put my smoker under it. I move the smoker around under the super and in just a few minutes, all the bees will be gone back to the hive.
