Each single box hive is ready for it's second brood box.
Therefore bees obtained now will have time to build up strength and yield a box of honey this summer.

We release our spring colonies as soon as new queens start laying and they are capping the new brood.


• Frames are mostly wooden.
• Standard wooden floor and roof, although some 1 box colonies will have a new galvanised roof with a new crown board.
• Wooden boxes, bases and lids are paraffin treated, and painted (where appropriate)


Colonies can be collected from our home base in Wanganui.

We suggest that where applicable we transfer bees into your own gear here in Wanganui before you travel home at the end of the day.

Other delivery options can be discussed with you when you place an order.
