If anyone is interested in having some lovely beehives at their place for pollination we're looking for new sites now! Ideally it will be in the Brisbane suburbs with access to drive a vehicle close to the hives. We prefer to keep a minimum of four to make it worth our while travelling.
They're very kind, tame bees (used to being inspected and with people around them). We take care of all inspections etc and it wont cost you a cent. Oh, did I mention we'll keep you well stocked with local honey also? ... See more
