Ok, next Newbie question. The new hive is ordered, arriving before Christmas. Next…bees, am I too late in season for bees and therefore need to wait until October 2018? Most online sources appear sold out. Or, is it still ok, and if so, does anyone out there know a reputable seller near Newcastle NSW (Australia) thanks
Are you a member of a local beekeeping club near Newcastle? The club would have the best contacts plus these guys would be collecting swarms and may give or sell you one.
Hi Hazjo, we installed our first package just a few days ago down in Wollongong and they’re going great. We bought from a local bee equipment supplier and he seemed to be still selling quite a few packages. Good luck, Aaron and Jane
