These colonies have been raised with the current season’s queens. Each nucleus colony includes at least four fully drawn frames and bees in Hive Doctor corflute transport hive. Under normal seasonal conditions, the new season nucleus colonies are available from November to January. The last seasonal orders are accepted around mid-January. Our colonies are usually available with Italian queens.
We can arrange for you to collect your nucleus colony at one of our apiaries near Canberra ACT or Queanbeyan NSW.
