I did order the extractor this morning and they said it will be shipping in 4 - 6 weeks, better than 8 - 10 weeks. So if it does actually arrive in 4 - 6 weeks would it be better to leave the honey supers on the hives or should I pull them now, freeze, and store them.
Mike, I do belong to a club, and yes they have an extractor they rent out. The problem is I would have to take off from work and it is 100 miles away one way. So by the time I am done I would have to have taken a day off work, drive a total of 400 miles and rent it for a minimum of 2 days. It's hard to justify the time and expense to do this. Not a very viable option.
There are several beekeepers around me that currently crush and extract or hang inverted in a warm room. They are very interested in renting it once I have it as they don't know of anyone around here that has one either.
They too are wondering what their options are as well.
