Strong and on time

I received my new queen on a timely basis when promised [April]. She and her companions were all alive, healthy and strong.

Proof of the pudding will be in the late spring but all very good so far.

Queen bee

The Queen was really well packed and although came threw the postal service was calm on arrival and workers still healthy and caring for the Queen, she was no trouble to install with the 45* method and the hive bees began to introduce themselves immediately via the mesh. After a few days the workers released her into the hive and all is well.

  • 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.

    Equipment:

     

    Method:

    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.

     

    IMPORTANT

    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.
