Bees for Sale

Bees for Sale from Members…

BIBBA are encouraging their members to raise extra queens and nucs to sell in order that we can dissuade beekeepers from buying imported queens.

We presently do not have the ability to inspect or vouch for such queens and nucs but require the seller to commit to the statement:

“I confirm that my queens are raised from local stock and
are not imports, and that I support the objects of BIBBA.”

NUCS Available Marlborough, Wiltshire 5 frame in wooden NUC – £160, 6 frame in poly NUC £200, and 12 frame available (double poly NUC £350). Bees are locally bred, treated 3 times a year for mites (oxalic Vape in Dec, Varromed in late spring, Apivar in Aug/Sep). All bees are from splits from existing hives (no swarms). I am a local hobbyist bee keeper – selling bees to keep numbers down – this is not a business and my bees all originate from a single Buckfast NUC purchased in the spring of 2020. Bees are of good health, and as yet no winter losses since starting bee keeping in 2020. Bees are calm on frame, and good honey producers. Feel free to contact me on 07880 666000 or email on . Visits welcome
