Hoping someone on here can appreciate what we scored last night! For $200 (talked them down $25), we got a nice 2 frame honey extractor (worth over $300), an electric uncapping knife ($100 new and everything is in EXCELLENT condition), 2 pair bee gloves ($20/ea), 2 veils ($20/ea), frame gripper($7), hive tool ($7), smoker ($40), and a bee feeder ($10). There were a couple of other little things tossed in the box I'm not familiar with yet (will make a great ? for our bee club!), a box of burlap for the smoker, and a couple dozen quart jars!
We are so stinkin' excited!!!!!
We also got 3 more calls today for us to please come extract bees from people's barns/sheds/etc.
We accidentally got into extracting swarms, lol. We did one at our place, one at a nearby shed, and then people started calling after they heard we'll do it. We started w/2 colonies of our own, and now have doubled that. I think we're going to start selling complete colonies next year.
