Marked Queen Bee

Hi , I kindly asked you to marked the queen bee for me ( even if i had to pay extra). Instead i was told from your company to buy a maker kit from you and mark queen bee myself. What a solution!
I am new beekeeper and in the pass i have killed queen bee by accident. It is hard for me to spot the queen unless is marked. This would have help me a lot.
So due to the importance if this small detail ( which by the way is misleading on your web site with a marked queen picture) I give you low rating . Thanks

We have highlighted previously via direct communication to you that we do not mark our queen bees. This again is reinforced in the images and the product description that we get so many different requests from keeping them natural to marking them with specific colours.
Due to volume of queens we work through, all of the bees come straight from the bee-yard and as a result all queen bees are not marked. We find most customers don’t want them marked so that they can choose the colour of their choosing or leave them natural if they require this. As also highlighted we do provide you the kits if your require this but this is.
One reason why many of our customers choose not to mark their queens, most of our queens are golden in colour and tend to stand out against the slightly darker bees..
Marking aside, we are sure you will find our queen bees will be great performers for you.

Many regards,
Buzzbee Team

The bees arrived safely in the mail healthy and well - and I received notification prior to their arrival so I knew when to expect them. i would certainly buy again!

Strong bees and quick delivery

When ordering queen bees online, you worry about how they'll do AFTER they have been mailed out to you. Two positives that I experienced are (1) promptness of shipment, including notifications, and (2) strong queen.Very happy with the purchase.

Giving thanks

Buzzbee provide an excellent service, my Queen arrived promptly and in excellent condition as did the drones accompanying her. The follow-up service the guys provide is awesome any questions or queries are answered and they will go out of their way to ensure the ongoing health and success of your hive. I can't thank you enough for your support..

Golden Italians

My golden girls arrived well and fit and beautifully packaged with sugar water towel between each cage, in two days- incredible in these days of delayed post, but during the rain, so that was a bit fraught. Lost one or two attendants waiting for weather, but the ladies were then ensconced into hives on a super honey flow, and immediately accepted with no fuss, and got to work. Excited to have some gentle genetics introduced to my yard. Thank you Buzzbee, I’m thrilled with them.



Ask a Question
  • Where is location.can I come to take bee Queen

    Our bees are collected from our main office location in Ringwood East and not our Bayswater warehouse.


  • I have a very angry hive of bees, from which I just took 3 frames from to split the hive with a new queen from buzzbees. If I bought another queen for this hive, how do I find and oust the old queen??

    If you are having difficulties in finding the queen bee then we recommend a different technique which we call the shake check method.


    This requires the following equipment.




    1. Using the carpet tape, place a strip around the top inside ONE of the boxes. Therefore, you will have a thin strip touching the top edge of the box but stuck on the inside of the box.
    2. Get the smoker working well with lots of smoke.
    3. Now move the entire hive aside a few feet apart from the floor. Do not move the floor.
    4. Place on the brood/super box that does not hold the tape.
    5. Add the queen excluder above this box.
    6. Add the second super with the tape on top of the queen excluder with the tape side upwards.
    7. Now methodically with the brood box that contains the queen, pick up one frame at a time and carefully move the frame over to the brood box/super that contains the tape. Carefully but firmly shake the bees off the frames so that they fall onto the queen excluder. The bees will try to move up the side of the box where the tape will act as a basic barrier as they do not like the texture and helps keep them down below this line.
    8. After shaken the bees from the frame, double check that no straggler bees that are still holding on contain the queen bee. Now move the frame aside and place into the 3rd Super box noting the order and orientation you have taken then out of the original brood box.
    9. Using the smoker, puff the bees to encourage the bees to move downwards through the queen excluder. You are effectively using the queen excluder in reverse.
    10. The idea is that the worker bees will go through the queen excluder where the drones and the queen bee will not. By scanning the surface, you should find the queen bee trying to get through.
    11. Repeat this process with all the remaining frames until you find the queen bee.
    12. Once found, capture the queen in a queen bee catcher similar to https://buzzbee.com.au/products/queen-queen-catcher-clip-plastic
    13. Once found the queen and placing her aside, using the bottom deep box now using this as the new brood box, slowly replace the frames that you have shaken out. Carefully reassembling the frames in the same order and orientation.
    14. You now have a colony that is now queen-less.



    Please note that if you have an aggressive colony that has recently had a queen, please do not add a new queen in to the colony for at least 48 hours. You need the colony to recognise that they are queen-less for a longer period of time before adding in a new queen bee.

  • Hi, Just wondering what the time frame between ordering and delivery is, and what the delivery method is? Ta!

    At the moment as Spring has just started, so has the breeding of Queen Bees. We expect that the first batch of Queens will be ready in Mid-October. At this point the bees will be ready for either pickup or will be posted. If posted our customers will recieve a tracking number to track the queen bees all their way to their new home.

  • Hi. I have a new 10 frame hive, no bees. Will a new queen and some workers be enough to start a hive?

    If you are wanting to start up a new beehive from scratch then you need what is called a colony of bees. This contains 1 queen bee, possibly some drone bees but also thousands of worker bees. These can be purchased here https://BuzzBee.com.au/bees .

    You can not start up a new hive with just a queen bee, you need a whole community to support her to not only manage the hive, take care of the new brood but also to venture out to collect nectar and pollen.

    Hope that this helps you.
