COBA now owns a small extractor
which is available at the Beeyard for members to use for a nominal fee of $5.00 per use. In addition, anyone using the extractor is responsible to for cleaning it up after the extracting is finished. This extractor is only three frames and hand operated. It is not intended for the beekeeper with a lot of honey to extract. If you would like to borrow it, check with Joy Voorhees at 256-5626. Several members who live close to the bee yard will have the combination for the key to open the storage shed where the extractor is located. It is not to be removed from the building without making prior arrangements for its use.
Pat Chambers, co-chair education committee, has our observation hive
available to members. Contact her at 614-891-6302 or email: email@example.com
should you need to borrow it. COBA would like to encourage members to give bee talks and having honey bees in an observation hive is a great way to get the attention of the public.
