Starting to gather extraction supplies and my question is about filters.

What micron filter(s) do you suggest? I like the double filter, but the one I have found is 1000 and 500 micron whereas the plastic filters get down to 200 microns. Is that neccessary? How fine do I need to get bee parts, larvae and bits of comb out?

Thanks,

Jeanine

You may also want to consider a 5 gallon paint filter bag from Lowes home improvement. IT does a great job of getting all the bee parts and wax bits out.
If you do get one just rinse with water no soap let it dry and use.

We use a stainless steel kitchen strainer from Walmart. It is about the same hole size as window screen. Works great on 5 gallon bucket.
