Prices & Ordering


During the swarming season Mid April – early July, scout bees will be looking for suitable homes. If they come to a consensus that it is the best home available, then a swarm will move in shortly afterwards.

Hives ideally should be set up in early spring before the swarm season starts.


I  offer a service where I deliver the hive and help you choose the best place to put the bees and then after preparing the hive to attract a swarm,  fit the hive up into the tree for you.

This service also gives me some time to talk to you about bees and what observations you might expect with a healthy colony.
