    Re: Best small scale electric extractor?

    The 2 frame won't, but the 9 frame will extra 6 mediums radially and 3 deeps tangentially at the same time. I just got mine in today and put empty frames in to verify this.

    Re: Honey Container Prices

    I pretty much don't drink anything that isn't poured into a glass first, unless I am at an event or location that prevents it. :)



    I didn't and haven't had anyone ask for glass. The question...

    Re: Honey Container Prices

    I am getting ready to buy containers for our upcoming harvest. So, I have been conducting an informal survey among the women I know. 100% of them said they would rather buy honey in glass than...

    Re: Honey extractor?

    It is going to throw the honey to the inside wall of the extractor. The cell's angle will prevent the adjacent frame from filling up, too.

    Re: Honey extractor?

    When I called last week, Maxant was out. But indeed, there were several of their dealers that had them in stock. I found the closest one to me and I should have my new 3100H on Wednesday! :D

    Re: Best small scale electric extractor?

    I just bought a Maxant 3100H today. I wanted to go with the 3100P, but the hand crank will work for this year and I will upgrade next year. I liked the fact that this is a radial extractor.

    I saw the pictures. It looked good. Were you able to salvage any of the comb?

    Re: North Texas flow is slowing down

    I wasn't expecting to get much this year, as I have been sick and not able to tend to the hives like they need. But, I took a peek today and they filled out two more medium supers. It looks like I...

    You can go through the series of shots. I have done it for wasps and hornets. They do work. After the series of shots, I have been stung twice by wasps with no reaction. The two times prior sent...

    Re: Got our first ever honey crop today

    :thumbsup: Congratulations! :thumbsup:

    I am hoping we get to extract some honey this year, but I am not really counting on it.

    I was watching the front on one of my hives and saw one land on the bottom board and walk right in. I tried to get it, but I was too slow. :doh:

    I read through the laws a month or so ago and I don't remember anything about that.

    I wear one because that was what the "old man" beekeeper/tree trimmer wore in the little town I grew up in. I always thought it was cool. Of course, the "old man" was probably only in his late 40's...
