Does anybody have a Nuc or a split?


I am on the Gold Coast QLD.
I am new to beekeeping but have a hive all ready to go.
Problem is I have no bees, is anyone doing a split or have a Nuc that I can have, unfortunately at present I am out of work so cannot afford to purchase these but will gladly take either of them if they need a home…


Is that a flow hive that you have? I can put a colony of bees into it in exchange for a hand to do some pruning, mulching, mowing & tidying up my back yard & verandah. I live at Buderim.


Thanks anyway JeffH I am on Gold Coast and cannot get to you.


What a brilliant offer…we should all be doing more of this.


As a hail merry you could set up the brood box as a swarm catcher. Put it in place and put some lemon grass oil and you may get lucky. May be an interim step for you.

Love your offer Jeff!!!



A colleague at work really recommends “Swarm Commander Spray” for catching swarms.


Thank you so much for this. I was into this issue and tired to tinker around to check if its possible but couldnt get it done. Now that i have seen the way you did it, thanks guys
