The Regina & District Bee Club has a small stock of drawn comb which we offer to new members to help them get started.
Many new beekeepers start out by purchasing a hive or a nuc, and then build all the remaining equipment they need. A problem arises with this process. New frames containing foundation require the comb to be drawn out (built). This is the case for both wax and plastic foundation. The issue is that the bees really have no interest in moving up into a super that contains nine frames of foundation.
The Club has purchased a new electric extractor to rent to members. A refractometer is also available with the extractor so you can check moisture levels. First come first served. Please print and fill out the contract to rent it. Members only (you are welcome to join to use it).
