I have a surplus of bees and am passing them on in the way I have done for a number of years. I sell the bees not the equipment . Prices start at £30 for 5 frame nuke. All bees with laying queen. people bring me their hive and frames, I transfer the bees to their hive and keep the appropiate number of frames in exchange.
Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
