The Honey season is upon us. The extractor/uncapping tray/fork/knife/ strainers for rental is now available. Book early if you are going to need it. It’s only 35.00 Euros for a 24-hour period (enough for most of us!) and saves having to go out and spend a fortune for equipment that you only use once or twice in the year.
Our rental extractor is light and mobile and will fit in any car.
We also have most of the above items available for purchase if you prefer to have your own.
Next up after taking your honey you’ll need to consider treating for varroa. While it’s still warm is ideal for Apiguard as it works best when the temperature is 15/16 Centigrade or higher. Our new stock is in and ready for the rush.
If you have the opportunity to have hives on the heather, this is a great time to consider switching to unwired wax in your supers as this will give you a great quality cutcomb honey with no messy extraction/pressing etc. Unwired shallow wax for National is only 7.15 Euros for a pack of 10 sheets.
Don’t forget to stock up on syrup for the Autumn feed. Our price this year is down to an amazing 25.00 Euros for a 14Kg container. And if you’re lucky enough to me a member of the Digges Beekeepers there’s a 10% discount.
Other buyers of bulk (over 5 drums) talk to me.
