Beekeepers! Rick will be bringing equipment to Iotron for sterilization next week. It’s a bit of a haul out to Port Coquitlam if you don’t have a vehicle, so if you have a “small amount” of Langstroth hive equipment you’d like him to truck over to get sterilized, here’s what you need to do:


  1. Visit this page https://richmondbeekeepersca.wordpress.com/club-activities/iotron/ and read about how it works
  2. The maximum amount of equipment we will accept from any person or group is $20 worth (per fee schedule in the link above). If you have more equipment than that, please make your own arrangements.
  3. Package and label your equipment as described on the linked page
  4. Tally up the fees you owe per the above page, and get exact change (tips appreciated though! :). Put it in an envelope clearly marked with your name, phone number, what equipment you’re paying for, and the $ total enclosed.
  5. Bring your equipment and payment to the store (649 E Hastings) no later than 6pm on Monday, March 14th.
  6. We will notify you when your equipment is ready for pickup at the store. Expected ready date is Friday, March 18th. Please plan to pick up your equipment within a week of that time.
