Very new newbie here. Was reading this site today for the first time and have learned alot already. OK, never heard of the crush and strain method though it seems clear and easy to do (I have access to lots of 5-gal plastic buckets). My questions are these: (1) My new foundations are the pressed bees wax type. Can you crush and strain this type? (2) I thought that with the extractor method, you still have the drawn comb left to be used next year and the bees are just that much further ahead of the game next year. True or does the extraction method also destroy your supers comb? (3) I guess the crush method means I would have to buy new supers foundation and rewire and re-press the foundations. True? Thanks and cheers. OldScout.
