Bees for sale! Due for pick-up from approximately mid-October.

Are you just starting out beekeeping and need to fill a new hive with bees? Did you lose a colony of bees over winter and wish to replace it? Each year we offer a limited number of bees for sale in the form of nucs (short for nucleus). We sell langstroth nuc colonies and are testing top bar hive nuc colonies for the first time this year. Our nucs are sold as 5 frame full depth nucs for langstroth hives (standard measurements). Similarly, top bar hive nucs are sold with 5 bars of bees. Please note there is no standard size for top bar hives. Therefore if you haven’t purchased your top bar hive from us you may need to cut the brood down to fit into your hive. We expect these nucs to be available in mid October however this can change due to the weather.

 

Preordering your nuc is the best way to ensure your will receive your bees early on in the season. Nucs are supplied on a first order-first fill basis. Nucs are collected from Murrumbateman NSW just after sunset so that all the bees from the colony have returned to the nuc. The queen will also be marked for easy identification.

If you wish to preorder a nuc please submit an inquiry via our contact store here. Please note we charge a $55 deposit on booking. If you purchase through our online store prior to submitting an inquiry you will automatically be charged the full price.
