    Default When extracting someone else's honey??

    So when your running someone else's honey and the terms are all set in stone, except
    For the wax. Who gets it? Do you have the customer drive two hours with extra barrels just for the wax or do you just include it in your extracting fee? We're talking like 30 pallets of deep darks and a little white 3/4 worth of wax. Also what of the top and bottom bar scrapping? Is that all included because that's extra work for you.

    Write up the wax as yours. Include it in your fees

    We charge by the pound and we keep the wax as part of the deal.

    Most people I would agree keep the wax that are doing the extraction. Just part of the extraction fee.

    So much per pound and the extracter keeps the wax. If you scrape then you should figure that into your per pound price. Extra time and bother demands compensation.

    What r u charging?

    So this isn't your operation doing the extracting?

    Hope you don't get peed on.
