Re: Are you ready to replace carrying heavy honey supers by hand with an electric pow
Actually lifting one by one is way faster than making a second trip back to a bee yard and what if you are only taking off 1 or 2 boxes per hive?. Using a light sprinkle of bee go on a blow box is incredibly efficient, 2 men can easily pull 100 mediums off of a yard in an hour. Most all commercials have invested in auto load extracting systems and the honey house has become a far more efficient place than it was a few decades ago, but those same commercials aren't using the system you suggest to pull honey. Are you suggesting the same beekeepers who have modernized their extracting rooms and use forklifts for pulling honey, stacking boxes and moving bees are now guilty of group ignorance about how to most efficiently pull honey? Commercials have some incredibly bright and innovative thinkers that have made lots of improvements but more mechanization isn't always the answer.
