Hello,

We are a small veggie farm looking for a swarm. We rely heavily on bees to pollinate our produce and have noticed far fewer bees on our crops this season :(

We have a hive set up ready to go. We are located in Captains Flat but are happy to travel to collect a swarm.

Thanks everyone!

Emily.

Hi all,

I have a swarm available in Higgins.

Currently in Styrofoam box with some frames.

Would like box and frames back or bring your own box.

Hi there, we have purchased Dad one of those flow hive honey systems (I know they don’t rate well with the traditionalists, sorry if we are offending but we wish to get dad a nice hobby)) but would your nucleus hives/swarms fit the honey flow system. We already have the flow system brood box with 8 frames, would this be suitable or do we need to bring you the frames to get us started? If so what would be the total price for this. We live in Queanbeyan but happy to travel to get them

If anyone could help or guide us on the right direction, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks again

Valentino

Haven't many swarms available on the post recently.

Are members seeing any about? There seemed to be a rush in Sept Oct but seems to have gone quiet.

I am checking a hive on the weekend that sounds like it is queen-less after swarming 3-4 weeks ago so might need a swarm to paper on.

Are there any available? I am in Mawson/Farrer.

Thanks, Clive - 0438500845
