    Acebird joined March 2011 so a forum member for a round 6 months 1512 posts

    Oldtimer joined July 2010 forum member for around 14 months 1548 posts

    I wonder which one of these two has been the most helpful with their 1500+ posts and which one has been a little less informative

    I gave up on one of the them a long time ago

    How can I unsubscribe from this thread? I already rated it as "terrible".
    Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, flood and strange weather. The bees are still alive.

    Yes, a mobile extracting plant can work, and as others have enlightened you to, has already been done. It's just not done much any more because most commercial beekeepers have moved to the lower labor, lower cost, option, of a central extraction plant.

    However, your word "craziest idea", was not what I said about the mobile extracting plant. Some of the other ideas that went along with it, such as moving hives, bees and all, to the extracting plant, would be more worthy contenders for the "craziest idea" prize.
