  1. Hiya Tristan - that looks like our Maxant China Type hive tool. This is a Chinese made tool that we recommend for hobbyists as it's cheap and is better suited for casual use. We have a range of hive tools that are better suited for commercial beekeepers (made in Italy or Taiwan) that are designed for every day, heavy duty work. See the links below a few of the better suited alternatives. Stronger counterpart for the red tool: https://www.ecrotek.co.nz/product/maxant-ebs-s-s-10-hive-tool-w-hook Heavy Duty 10" Blue Kelly Type: https://www.ecrotek.co.nz/product/kelly-type-mannlake-10-hive-tool-blue 9" Kelly Type: https://www.ecrotek.co.nz/product/s-steel-med-kelly-type-9-hive-tool ^Willow
  2. Off the top of my head I can think of John Burnet from Capital Beekeeping Supplies - he does apairy consulting and is based in Welly. Check his website and you'll find his number. ^Willow
  3. Hiya - it looks like you've got most of your answers but I'll pop the conversions for all the jars below. Plastic Poly Jars 250g - 200 ml 500g - 400 ml 1 kg - 750 ml Glass Jars 500g Square - 380 ml 500g Round - 400 ml Hope this helps! ^Willow
  4. Hi Shane, good to hear from you. We’ve come a long way since the merger years ago – and to be fair, our waxing machine’s consistency wasn’t the best back then but constant tweaking and upgrading has changed this and the waxing job more superior. Stock-wise we do our best to forecast what we need on hand but can get caught short if someone calls needing stock yesterday – all of this aside, sorry that we couldn’t help you out of those tight spots previously, I will pass this on to the team. Can you flick me an email on sales@ecrotek.co.nz? Thanks, Willow
  5. Hi - Willow here from Ecrotek. Just thought I'd respond to some of the comments on this topic. In reference to Olbe's comment regarding chemicals, the Beetek frames from Ecrotek use certified food grade resin and do not emit any chemicals whatsoever. Shane, please let us know if the pre-waxed frames have been purchased from us and what you have found disappointing. Around 60% of our plastic frames are now pre-waxed and most customers like the 30g coating. However, we do offer 50g for a heavier coating if this is more suitable for your operation. Look forward to hearing from you! ^Willow
  6. Hi Maja, We have two hobbyist-sized electric extractors - one is the 5-frame Tangential Bottom Drive, and the other is the 6-frame Reversible Tang. Bottom Drive. I'll pop the links to these below - the 5-frame extractor is currently on special too! 5-frame: https://www.ecrotek.co.nz/product/lega-5-frame-tangential-bottom-drive-extractor 6-frame: https://www.ecrotek.co.nz/product/6-fr-lega-rev-elec-tang-btm-drv-extr ^Willow

  9. Hello! The Ecrotek Team officially has their own account on NZ Beekeepers+ We are here to answer any questions, product queries, provide product information and contribute to beekeeping discussions where possible! We have been in the industry for four years now, but most of the staff at Ecrotek are beekeepers that have grown up around bees, kept bees for years - as well as the odd few who simply love absolutely everything to do with bees! We look forward to answering any questions you may have! Happy Beekeeping!
