    Re: 2 small extractors instead of 1 big one?

    Re: 2 small extractors instead of 1 big one?

    In an ideal world, the uncapping process should take slightly less than run time for the same number of frames, so that as stated previously, while one extractor is running, the other is emptied and...

    Ace, I hate to tell you, but the Dadant control MAY be more than you can imagine. Ours is simple, rugged, yet performs better than a straight up DC drive could. It is a Variac, advanced by a timer...

    Did teh queen REALLY disappear, or is she still alive in the hive and not laying. We have also seen that, and they refuse to raise a new queen because the old one "refuses to give up the throne"....

    Ace, My father did not patent it, besides, the article is from 1966, which is more than 7(?) years ago, so any patents would have expired.

    Are all of the superceded queens of the same age, and if so, what age? We often see problems with package queens between after one to two cycles of brood. If they make it past two , they usually are...

    Re: 500 hive operation Honey extraction line

    Yes, I can see a need for a better method of separating honey and wax. The C+B works well, but is noisy. The old Fager press(2 SS flattop conveyor tracks that converged) was quiet, but did noit do as...

  14. Re: "...honey vs. sucrose or high fructose corn syrup"

    I can personally support Jim Lyon's statements about how bees react differently to Sucrose syrup and HFCS.

    Most all of the old timers knew that sucrose was better for the bees.
