Ha! Good one!

I loved the description: "Worth several thousand dollars"

Should have said "Worth several million dollars"

ETA> Perhaps I was too hasty. I didn't notice the auction included "queen extruders". They might be worth several thousand dollars, what with the going price for queens these days...

And dont forget You will begin making money this next summer!!!  I wonder if there is a money back guarantee for this, LOL!!

It is very close to me and I would bid a couple hundred but the bid starts a $900 with no pics.  He says maybe he will post pics if he gets no bids.  LOL!!

Considering that hive equipment filled with bees runs around only $120 - 130, that does seem high.  Used equipment has a faster depreciation profile than new cars!
