Queens for sale

caged and ready

Nice to have a few available for the club Xmas party. Sold out in 5 min as I spruiked along the dinner queue!

Quote from purchaser “looking in on the queen I bought from you. She’s filled the bottom box and was filling the second. Very nice solid brood pattern, and she was standing calmly in the middle of a frame when I saw her.

I’m really happy so far. That hive is looking the best it’s ever looked.”

Cut out

amazing wild comb

Although I resolved not to do any more cut outs here’s another, done for a pal.  Extraordinary how regular the combs were built and also that the bees chose such a large cavity (they are supposed to prefer 40L).
