Jeff Lee was here today (10 Feb) to pick up the first batch of bee boxes (45) to take down to Coquitlam to be electron irradiated at Sterigenics. Iotron has been bought out by a new owner, Sterigenics, and they have increased the radiation dose by half so that treatment is now more effective, and hence the increase in price from last year. Unfortunately there is now also a slower turn-around time with the new ownership. So…… Jeff was wondering if there would be any other folks who would like to get their boxes treated by the end of February, beginning of March. This would allow him to take another load down when he is planning to return to pick up the first load which will not be ready until then.
If you have boxes that you would like to send down at the beginning of March, please contact me for more information.
