Re: Do i need to purchase honey extraction equipment ?
There is no good reason to have to buy an extractor this year.
There is a possibility that your hives could do well enough to have surplus honey this year. If that happens, you could:
- leave it on the hive for the bees first winter
- crush and strain
- freeze the frames til you do get an extractor
- see if your local beekeeping club offers an extractor for member's use
- build your own extractor
