Swarm season is here! This one was enormous, overflowing out of two brood boxes, but the bees seem delighted with their new home. We are regularly out collecting swarms around Lismore and Ballina in spring if they are in a reachable location. If you see a large bunch of bees on a tree branch or perched on a fence in our local area feel free to ring us. If the hive has already moved in somewhere we may still be able to help.
Do you have bees which you don't have time for? Bees, like all livestock, need responsible and consistent management. This means that your bees won't suffer from pests like small hive beetle and diseases like AFB. When your bees breed up in spring they become overcrowded, swarm and become a pest which takes natural hollows and nest boxes away from native wildlife. Contact us so we can help you out by helping your bees in the Northern Rivers while you are busy elsewhere!
Bees are livestock and need careful management. If you are not confident and experienced spotting eggs, finding your queen, managing pests like small hive beetle, diseases like AFB, and splitting hives to prevent swarming we can help you out and teach you how to boost your beekeeping skills. Contact us for help with your bees at your place within the Northern Rivers, NSW.
Sometimes we sell nucleus hives, brood boxes or full hives (brood box with two supers). Contact us if you are looking for bees.
