Ideal Novice Opportunity
I am changing my hive type and upgrading my extractor so have the following for sale.
One Cedar National Hive complete with super and frames. (Thornes)
Hive also comes with Bees most of my bees are Buckfast and chosen for temperament and productivity.
One empty Cedar Nucleus (you always need 50% more equipment than bees for swarm control.
One Thornes nine frame electric extractor used but still very serviceable. A nine frame electric extractor is currently £1668 at Thornes.
One book on beekeeping.
Two four hour sessions on beekeeping.
Ideal opportunity to visit a busy working Apiary whilst getting hands on experience.
I am happy to overwinter the bees saving the buyer the risk of losing any bees over winter.
The buyer is welcome to view the package before purchase and a deposit will secure until required. (Bees cannot be inspected before until spring 2017)
They will be treated in December to keep varroa in check.
I am 7 miles from junction 27 of the M1.
