Wanted to buy Sydney Nuc Package Hive

Hi, I know it’s late but looking for some bees for my new hive.
Cheers Shane

Hi Shane
I think you are best waiting in all honesty. You would likely end up feeding any nuc you got and trying to nurse them through winter. Best bet is to buy a full hive with honey stores or wait for spring.
Perhaps think of it more as not late but early for next spring.

Agree with BayoNat- things have really slowed down in Sydeny with the bees and now is not the time to try and build up a package. Best bet is to purchase an established hive or wait until spring. Have a look on Gumtree maybe? However I think a lot of people are suddenly curious about getting bees being stuck at home and all- and maybe more demand right now that colonies avialable.
