    Default Ross Rounds

    Does any one use and sell Ross Rounds?
    And how much do you charge retail for Ross Rounds.

    This will be our first attempt at ross rounds so i'm curious if anyone responds to this thread. We have had so much interest in the Cut comb style honey from our consumers, we are hoping to be able to supply this for them.

    I was lucky and got several hundred boxes and frames givin to me. Two suppers so far are Ross Rounds. I took them apart washed them and then put foundation in them.

    I got one super of Ross Rounds simply because there seems to be an interest in my area for comb honey. From what I am able to find out, prices range in the 6 to 8 dollar area for each round. I figure if nobody wants to buy the rounds, I can trim them out and drop them in jars of honey for the look.

    I produce a couple of supers per year. Demand is not high in this part of the world. I usually charge $6-7 for them. As casinoken suggested. I use any that are not perfectly filled for chunk honey.

    Need to get them on during a very heavy flow. Bees will work them but reluctantly.

    I have never tried to produce Comb Honey. Here is a link to Grant Gillard's talk about producing Comb Honey. The link is to the American BeeKeepers Federation conference website. A lot of good information. He talks about Ross Rounds.

    Do you cut the rings off the combs before packaging?

    I think you just slap a front and back cover right on the ring.

    Ben: I was given a few boxes of rounds that I'll sell you complete for a reasonable price - shipping plus enough to buy me a few other supplies - rather than trading. Send me an email if interested. pbuhler@vermontel.net

    I've been waiting for a youtube video to show up. Bluesky Beesupplies did the honors. Thanks.

    Does anyone have success without doing a cut-down split?

    Could using a twenty frame horizontal Lang. make the splitting easier?

    These guys get $6 to $7.50. I have seen it for $8. On the internet, one site is selling for $15 and Savannah Bee is getting $21. Savannah Bee is sold out!! Why such the difference in price for the same round comb? With the extra equipment involved, the extra time baby sitting hives and the fact that it's a specialty item, I would think that it would command a price much higher than $6.
