I am the Victorian agent for Kangaroo Island Ligurian Bees and am based in Bunyip Victoria (Australia).
The Ligurian bees are perfect for the beginner beekeeper and for urban environments. They come from the worlds oldest bee sanctuary (est 1885) Kangaroo Island which due to their bio-security rules, they are disease free as well as genetically pure.
- Both productive and very gentle.
- Possess longer tongues allowing them to gather nectar from more floral sources.
- They work earlier and later in both the hours of the day and the season.
- The queen is easier to spot which is ideal for novices.
- The queen is a prolific layer yet slows production during winter (uses less stores)
- Low robbing behavior
- Excellent hive cleanliness
Nucs are $176 each. Scheduled pickup only.
Due to the number of orders coming in and limited stock, it is critical to pre-order your 5 frame nucleus hive as soon as possible. Hives are due in between October to November 2015 just in time for the September to December Flow Hive deliveries! As soon as they are due to come in, those who have pre-ordered will be notified of the due date.
Should you also require assembled frames (wired and wax foundation), these can be supplied at $6 each.
Please send us a message should you be interested with your email address, a pre-order invoice will then be issued to you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly:
