    As a buyer, I love using Paypal. On Ebay I don't bid on anything if they don't accept it. I don't know how it works out for the sellers however, and that is probably what you want to know. Rob

    One of your most valuble assets is the comb. By extracting rather than crushing or making cut comb, you can reuse it over and over. The bees then dont have to waste energy drawing comb again.

    I put half of a clothespin under the top cover to raise it up a bit a few weeks ago. Perhaps I need something larger. How big a space are you trying to create?
