Buying brood

Recommended Posts

Guest Lynne Brunton
Hi there,
 
My name is Lynne and I have a tiny swarm that I've just re-queened. I'm worried that as they have very little comb, hardly any bees etc - they might not survive :( I'm looking for some brood in a top bar style frame if at all possible. I'f that's not available, I'd definitely take brood in a common Langstroth frame.
 
If anyone knows anyone that might sell me some, I'd really appreciate it. I live in Picton but would travel for them.
 
Many thanks!
Lynne

Hi Kevin,

 

Sorry for the delay. I’m feeding them but  I haven’t got any brood yet. It would be great to find some if you can. What’s the best way of keeping in contact?

 

Thanks

Lynne

@Lynne Brunton Is the Q laying ?  Are there enough bees to cover more brood ?

Hi,

 

I'll be checking that the queen is laying tomorrow (away today). Good question about enough bees to cover more brood - I'm not sure that there is. Is that a big problem?
